A collection of artwork inspired by modernist and brutalist architecture from two emerging artists Red Girling and Oscar Francis.


Sarah Evans is an architect turned artist who is known for creating architecturally inspired prints and textiles. Her distinctive work celebrates modernist architecture through the use of bold graphic prints and patterns that reimagine and reveal the character of these iconic buildings.


Red Girling is the pseudonym for Eliza Southwood, a printmaker and illustrator. As Red, she produces works that reflects the textural qualities of architecture and the built environment, in both abstract and figurative terms. She uses a variety of mediums such as collage, acrylic, charcoal and screen printing. Red graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Architecture and went on to practice as an architect in London for several years before becoming a full time artist
