      PROGRESS

      An exhibition by Andrew Holmes (Professor, School of Architecture). PROGRESS is a set of 20 hand drawn black and white realist images and texts that update John Bunyan’s allegory: The Pilgrims Progress, to the 21st century. Pilgrim’s wife is re-imagined as a female private detective driving through the sub-prime landscape of California, observing the locations of the original trials. The drawings are seen in the context of markedly sombre and austere black and white photographic prints that depict the surrounding landscape. Nature is seen as dark, intimidating, and threatening rather than benign.

In his brave and tenacious attempts to re-trace his footsteps, he is confronted with his own emotions about this horrific industry.
