This exhibition showcases new works by the Manchester based photographer and designer Lee Baxter and the performance artist and painter David Hoyle. This is their first joint exhibition.
The Manchester-based photographer Lee Baxter has developed a style of image-making that is distinctive and appealing. He combines an interest in architecture with an eye for a good-looking man to create photographs that are thoughtful, intimate, and subtly sexy. The treatment of his subjects – whether buildings, the sky, urban landscapes or people – always conveys a sense of character, and while they are very real they are never mundane.

The cabaret artist, singer, actor, comedian, film director and painter David Hoyle describes his work as “observations and echoes from a psychodrama”. Like all of David’s work, these works are intensely personal and yet call out to the wider community, and specifically the LGBTQ community to examine and question notions of materialism, hedonism and unity versus isolation.
The show is produced by Paul Darling and Peter Gwyn of Two Little Birds, fresh from their successful exhibition of Wolfpack!:Man2Man, featuring the work of three New York artists – Scooter LaForge, Walt Cessna and Krys Fox – at Manchester’s prestigious CUBE gallery. Two Little Birds seek to create a series of unique exhibitions, events and performances by artists, performers and writers from Manchester and from elsewhere in the UK, the US and Europe.
The exhibition is on:
Friday 9th November 6pm-9pm
Saturday 10th November 12pm-7pm
