Hopper is the genre defining painter of the urban landscape whose iconic oeuvre casts a long shadow over all artists inspired by the modern city. In the exhibition Hopper’s Shadow I confront his legacy by meticulously recreating in miniature his historic paintings and encapsulating them in a contemporary urban landscape. Each of Hopper’s anachronistic visions of the city are subsumed by the contemporary architecture with which I use to frame them. Through working with Hopper’s imagery I’ve entered into a dialogue with my acknowledged predecessor and challenged myself to continue to connect the urban landscape with a contemporary audience." - Peter Harris  photo unnamed-3_zpsiaqoua4n.jpg  photo unnamed-1_zpsiwzfrfka.jpg  photo unnamed-2_zpswyegcpxz.jpg
