James Chadderton's post-apocalyptic artwork depicts the iconic Cornerhouse building in Manchester in a state of decay and ruin. The mixed medium format allows for a gritty and textured depiction of the once-vibrant cultural hub, now a shell of its former self.
The artwork captures the aftermath of an imagined disaster, with the building's walls cracked and crumbling, its windows shattered and boarded up, and its exterior covered in layers of graffiti and overgrown foliage. The scene is haunting, evoking a sense of desolation and abandonment.
Despite the destruction, there are still hints of the building's former grandeur. The distinctive shape of the Cornerhouse's tower stands tall against the skyline, its metal framework rusted and weathered but still recognizable.
Use of mixed media adds to the overall sense of decay and disintegration. The combination of paint, collage, and other materials creates a layered, textured surface that gives the painting a sense of depth and history.
In this post-apocalyptic world, the Cornerhouse remains a symbol of Manchester's past, a reminder of the city's once-vibrant cultural scene. Through his artwork, Chadderton captures both the beauty and the sadness of a city in ruins.
