  • Leyden Gallery presents a solo exhibition of new painting from James Melloy

    27 April - 21 May
    PV Tues 26 April RSVP info@leydengallery.com

    Detroit, as a city, and a lost way of life, becomes the metaphor for Melloy’s work. It feels that something better might just burst through, that once again it will be the grassroots rebuilding that sees the humanity and optimism return to the city. The paintings, imbued with complex interpretations of the city further provoke urgent questions of austerity and production whilst speaking of the fragility of human existence.
