ANTHROPOLOGY From the Greek ánthrōpos (ἄνθρωπος, "human") and lógos (λόγος, "study") - The comparative study of human societies and cultures and their development. - The Science of human zoology, evolution and ecology. Master of the biro drawing Mark Powell returns to Hang-Up Gallery in March with his new solo show Anthropology. The exhibition will feature an exclusive collection of original pen and ink drawings, as well as a selection of limited edition print releases in collaboration with London’s prestigious publisher Jealous Gallery. Known internationally for his beautifully intricate biro drawings of the elderly and endangered species executed on found material, Powell is back with a fresh body of work that visually documents his recent travels from across the globe. By deeply immersing himself in new cultures and experiences Powell has expanded his visual vocabulary. For the first time, Hang-Up will be revealing the artists new direction of still life objects. Vintage cameras, used typewriters and discarded leather boots hint at the untold stories of their forgotten owners, and remind us of the inevitability of time’s passing.
