Ryan Steadman uses the stark backdrops of sharp-edged urban buildings to isolate the small-scale human dramas of the quotidian. Steadman's background apartment towers are flat and modernist, looming large behind the tiny expressionist figures that people his scenes.
The three paintings featured here are a colourful take on communicating, or making connections, in the concrete jungle. Some of his previous works portray his characters on their own - smoking quietly, climbing out of their scene or flashing the unseen eyes of the night.
