Moore St. Electricity Substation: Original Architectural Perspectives. Kenneth Steel // APG Studio. A new series of screen prints from the printmaking studio at APG featuring the landmark Sheffield building and noted example of Brutalism, based on early architectural perspectives by Sheffield artist Kenneth Steel (RBA, SGA 1906-1970), taken from designs by the late Bryan Jefferson. The original drawings are also in the show. Heavy conté crayon exactly evokes the rough concrete of the structure’s eventual form and texture. This exhibition also features modern prints of some of Kenneth Steel’s well-known travel posters and a small selection of other original drawings, which illustrate his great talent as a painter. The show is open Mon -Saturday from 11.00 am - 4.00 pm until September 19th, and the new print editions are available to buy.
