  Automotive masculinity and post-painterly sculpture collide in Darlington Stripe, young Basil Papoutsidis’ debut solo exhibition of wall-mounted and free-standing sculptures at Anna Pappas Gallery.

Interested in the sculptural and post-painterly contexts of formalist abstraction, Papoutsidis utilises the form and texture of various materials – from powder-coated steel to PVC and enamel – to create bold minimalist constructions that embody a sense of movement. While seemingly arbitrary in composition, each work is meticulously designed, and built according to a specific hierarchical structure; a Darlington Stripe for the beauty of honest construction.
