At the end of March I had the pleasure of photographing the opening event for David Lock: In Between Us at Firstsite

The wall is white with a strip of peach painted behind the larger piece. The backs of two people with short hair and dark clothing in front can be seen as they look at the exhibition.David Lock: In-between Us at FirstsiteDavid Lock: In-between Us at Firstsite.

"‘In-between Us’ seeks to examine identity and masculinities, challenging social constructs and stereotypes through art by weaving connections between the past and present."

It's an excellent exhibition and incredibly David Lock's first solo exhibition. Being in Colchester and specifically in Firstsite, home of The Berryfield Mosaic, it's particularly interesting to see Lock's interpretation and use of Roman artefact imagery in the exhibition.

Below are some photographs from the opening, but visit Firstsite's website to find out more about David Lock: In Between Us. Do visit to see the works in person if you are able!
