Anthony McCarthy B 1974

Manchester based artist Anthony McCarthy's drawings are a detailed exploration of urban life in Manchester and Salford. Recent works depict Rylands library, Vinyl Exchange on Oldham Street, Lowry Art Centre Salford and Central Library. McCarthy's obsessive use of pen and ink are utilised to build up lines and layers adding depth and a unique quality to each of the drawings. McCarthy has an eye for detail; streets and buildings are meticulously excavated onto paper.

McCarthy is inspired by graphic design and printmaking having studied these techniques in detail while at university. More importantly, McCarthy's work has parallels with the work of L S Lowry. Given that McCarthy has worked with the Lowry collection of paintings and drawings for over ten years it is easy to see how he has been inspired. Like Lowry, the architecture in McCarthy drawings tower over any human activity; the everyday presents itself through a web of lines and intensive perspectives.
