Build Bridges

The phrase ‘build bridges’ is a positive one with an open context; to physically build a bridge for connecting isolated communities, shorten journeys or promote cooperation between hostile groups. Here, Theresa Poulton interprets this as referring to racial relations. Located under the A66 bridge, Build Bridges is a colourfully geometric painting/banner responding to the theme of infrastructure. Its simultaneous blend and separation of multi-coloured and mono-coloured palettes relate to construction and form whilst inciting urgency in the foreground.
