CRY is a charity based around Cardiac Risk in the Young and supports those affected by sudden cardiac death. Undiagnosed heart conditions take the lives of at least 12 young people everyweek, a number in which this charity is aiming to lower through their fantastic research and prevention efforts. 

I was made aware of the work of CRY through a private commission requested by a family who had lost their child to a cardiac condition.

It should never be the case that a child or anyone should lose their life so suddenly over something that could potentially be diagnosed earlier on, CRY’s incredible efforts towards Young Sudden Cardiac Deaths with their research, raising awareness and prevention efforts in this field…

This coming week we are proud to focus on Nottingham artist Christopher Green and his collection of new work. Although Christopher has been painting all his life, mainly under a corporate, illustrative guise he has now broken through the fine art barrier and is receiving much wider recognition throughout the country.

Toy Town’ is a celebration of the classic model and cinematic indulgence that we all love, together with the beauty that hyperrealism can expose in the everyday of these objects. Lego figures and toy robots are put under a microscope, their details blown up to create monumental, bold and indulgent paintings that celebrate gaming and our childlike, enchanting imagination.

Exhibition –  27th June until 2nd July

Exhibition – ‘Toy Town’ : 27th June until 2nd July.

Toy Town’ is a celebration of the classic model and cinematic indulgence that we all love, together with the beauty that hyperrealism can expose in the everyday of these objects. Lego figures and toy robots are put under the microscope, their details blown up to create monumental, bold and indulgent paintings that celebrate gaming and our childlike, enchanting imagination.

The term hyper-realism appeared in the early 1970s to describe a resurgence of particularly high fidelity realism in sculpture and painting at that time. Christopher Green’s ability is incredible! Every inch of detail presents a new challenge as he works tirelessly to create lifelike form.
