About Barry Cawston

About the artwork

An abandoned cinema in Caibarien, Cuba. This pre-Revolutionary edifice was built when Cuba was a playground for tourists and mobsters alike, and America was still revered as somewhere to aspire to. Cawston’s Concrete Jungle is not a vision of the ultramodern, of orderly skyscrapers with comfortable interiors. It is rather of a Blade Runneresque postmodern world where the process of disintegration exposes an aesthetic of decay where a single splash of colour or simple lines of utilitarian architecture are revealed as the hidden beauty of our built environment. C-type photograph with a UV-protective acrylic face mount and metal subframe. The piece is hung from the subframe and sits away from the wall. The standard acrylic has a gloss finish, a matt version is available on request. Other sizes are also available if you would like more information please enquire.
