Neil Roland - Gallery 27 Manchester Picture Combinations
Where photographic artworks are required in groupings, it is possible to
create a variation on existing pictures that flow into each other - so three
pictures, for example, can each hang separately, but have the effect of being
one piece of art. The overall effect is of a continual flow.
Each picture can, of course, be created individually without the others.
Please ask about different colour combinations too.
Shown here are two trilogies of pictures, each four foot two (50 inches)
wide, so with a small gap between each picture, an area of around 14 feet can
The beauty of small, interrelated collections as opposed to one huge
piece is both its cost effectiveness, but more importantly its adaptability.
The pictures can be repositioned in the future, and it is much easier to move
them than huge, heavy pieces.

Despite the bee becoming so in the limelight
since the Manchester terrorist attack at the Arena, the bee has been the city's
symbol ever since Manchester was 'Cottonopolis' - the world centre of the
cotton trade, with Industry as The Queen and all the worker bees toiling to
keep the city great. This picture contains a range of bees, although I do
have an even larger collection from which to choose at my studio. The bees can
also be created as single images. Please just ask.

Manchester And The Law
Hempsons Solicitors at the Portland
Tower, the pictures work as a single, flowing combination, but each picture is
also designed to stand alone. The idea was to create two walls of pictures
linking Manchester with legal themes ,and creating one in plum and aqua
colours, the other in jades and sepia. Two separate pictures show the
Manchester Law Library ceilings.
