'Overlooked' - drawn from the works of 5 contemporary Sheffield artists who all share a common interest in exploring the unseen and mundane. Focussing on marginal, liminal spaces that most people wouldn't give a second glance. Creating observational paintings that use landscape to create a narrative and emotional tension.

'Look beneath the surface, let not the several quality of a thing nor it's worth escape thee' - Marcus Aurelius

Are You or Have You Been a Resident of Park Hill? If So Paul Allender Would like to Speak With You.

Aerosol on Concrete, 32 x 32 cm

I've a message from Paul Allender who's in the middle of a project collecting an aural history of Park Hill residents past and present (Paul wrote the introduction to our brochure for the show which can be read here )

"A team of researchers from Sheffield University want to interview residents of Park Hill about what it’s like to live here. This is part of a wider project being conducted by Museums Sheffield in partnership with the university. The research will take an oral history approach, exploring residents’ life stories and how they came to live in Park Hill.

There is also the possibility of getting involved in a documentary film about Park Hill which will be made later this year.

If you would like to get involved or want further information about the project, please contact either: Paul Allender, e-mail p.allender@sheffield.ac.uk, tel. 0797 935 7475 Or Louise Ritchie, e-mail l.e.ritchie@sheffield.ac.uk , tel. 0114 2228121
