A contemporary series of panoramic London cityscapes, by artist Brian Elwell. Integral to the meaning of the work are the many different processes used in creating the images. Some of the techniques involved include stencilling, printing, erasing and glazing in order to build up a layered surface which encompasses both organic and geometrical elements. Computer-aided manipulation and recombination of images also provides a fertile technique generating new and unexpected ideas. Printed digitally onto a canvas and stretched over a chunky box frame. See below for more details.
