New York-based Elbow-Toe’s first UK showing, Due Date, has another week of life at the Warrington Musem and Art Gallery.
A rare opportunity to see the work of this amazingly talented New York based artist. Well-known for his introspective urban art, Elbow-Toe’s gallery work focuses on portraiture and abstract narrative and is primarily executed in collage. These intricate collages at first glance might be mistaken for paintings given that they have a fluidity rarely seen in collages. Whilst his work has a very unique style it draws on a rich history of figurative painting and has qualities reminiscent of Freud, Bacon and Soutine.
Arrested Motion has images of the opening, which took place on December. Here, I’m just highlighting select works.
Due Date closes on February 19, 2011.
