The Vagaries and Misconceptions of the Modern Man is an exciting new exhibition running at Vane Gallery until Saturday 24th February. 
 
The exhibition brings together recent sculptural works by Ralph Darbyshire, Richard Hollinshead and Kenneth Ross in an exhibition that explores the fallibilities in seemingly certain masculine positions. The sculptural works engage with dense, difficult material and use a range of processes to explore political unrest, sexuality, violent and intergenerational dispute.
 
Ralph Darbyshire manipulates and layers materials, objects and imagery to create works that offer a sustained encounter that is at once seductive and confusing. Richard Hollinshead references the visual language of classical Greek sculpture, and the idealised male form it promotes, to explore contemporary male identity. Kenneth Ross’ interests lie in aspects relating to the structure of the banal: the cultural proliferation of the ‘Banal’, its glut and reverence, ‘Death and the Abyss’.
