When A Man Snaps

Stuart Spence

Head On to Paddington Installations - shopfronts

Exhibition Dates:

05 May 2018 to 20 May 2018


Exhibition Description

He turns garbage tins into daleks, camping chairs to nervy beasts, and blow up dolls into anxious girlfriends.

Enter the world of 'When A Man Snaps,' where Stuey's words and photographs come together, uncovering the humour, whimsy and confusion of a world most of us walk right past.

"I don't plan any of these photographs, I just turn up and there they are. Sometimes they're hiding, other times they just wait patiently in plain sight."

Stuey will leave one of his works tantalisingly uncaptioned, inviting the public to write their own caption

Pasteup installations at Perry Lane, Paddington and King Street, Newtown opposite Newtown Station.
