Art ~ARTZU Gallery_Chris Acheson_Re-Make Re-Model

Foxy Roxy Music at the Artzu Gallery


 For something truly inspired and eye-popping, the independent Artzu Gallery seems the ideal destination. Chris Acheson’s reflection on pin-ups and pop culture merges with a loving homage to massively influential 1970s band Roxy Music. Powerful use of colour and a wonderful intersecting mix of images – those of the mannequins behind a shop window and the reflection of the street in front – make for an intriguing and fabulously original collection.
