James Roper: Metanoia

A solo exhibition by Manchester based artist James Roper brings together the artists most recent painting, drawing and digital art into the gallery space at Waterside.

Meaning ‘to change one’s mind’ Metanoia describes the state the artist intends to invoke in the viewer, a visual form of limbo where the perceptual shift between abstraction and figurative art is in constant flux.

During the exhibition there will be 3 workshops that will give audiences an opportunity to discover more about the artists’ process and personally delve into practices that inform Roper’s artistic vision.
