Urban Sublime: An exhibition of paintings by the Urban Contemporaries and guests at the Coningsby Gallery, 30 Tottenham Street from 4th July to 16th July 2022

Frank Creber, Glenkerry House

Regular readers will know that we often feature the artwork of Frank Creber who is an artist with over thirty years experience of working with community groups in Bromley by Bow. Frank has charted the connection between redevelopment and their impact on local communities and has created work related to Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs.

I am delighted to say that Frank and a group of artists are holding a new exhibition that explores the theme of the Urban Condition.

Frank is part of a group called Urban Contemporaries which are a number of figurative painters aiming to explore the city experience. A motivation for the artists of the Urban Contemporaries is to create exhibitions made up purely of paintings and so to offer an opportunity to weigh the qualities and virtues of the medium.

Ferha Farooqui, Landscape and memory

It presents the ways contemporary painters continue to develop their language, finding links to the past and applying them to living, contemporary subject matter.

Many of the paintings explore the energy and tension of modern life examining particular places and scenes of the city environment.

Sarah Lowe, Latte to go

Many of the artists in Urban Contemporaries create works that meticulously record from life in all its elements.

The artists who make up the 16 Urban Contemporaries and the invited guest artists offer dynamic, thought provoking contemplations of the city environment, and the, predominantly, figurative nature of the works make them accessible to all audiences.
