Stephen Bush: Mule Skin, until 6 October, Sutton Gallery

It’s the final week to see the solo exhibition Mule Skin at Sutton Gallery by Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Stephen Bush.

Throughout his decades-long career, Stephen Bush has explored the possibilities and limitations of figurative painting. Known for his depictions of costumed participants and icons of visual culture set within idealised landscapes, Bush utilises the canvas to advance ideas about the dualities that describe the crises of contemporary existence.

Mule Skin runs until the 6th of October. For more information head to Sutton Gallery.
