High-vis, yet invisible, they are among us. Where there’s traffic to be managed, or roads to be worked, you will find them. Men and Cones turns the generator-powered spotlight onto the reflective workwear of our suburban heroes, as they go through their well-practiced motions of daily toil. This exhibition marks a shift in scale and focus from Huelin’s usually-intimate still life works, rendering workers – and their cones – monumental in their everyday lives.
