Unframed City: Paintings by Adrian Eckersley 

The city is overwhelming - too close, too elsewhere, too familiar, too strange, too crowded, too lonely.... No possible overview, instead only vistas, fragments, moments. I have been exhibiting, solo and with small groups, in London and the south east, since around 2000.

At first I liked to paint alien spaces - motorways, tunnels, transit hubs; now I often paint more public spaces - lonely crowds, night leisure haunts, shopping malls. My paintings include frames, but the city – often but not always London - has no frame.
