ICESCAPE // LOUISE MONTGOMERY

11th May – 8th June

Floorplan and Pricelist

With somewhat otherworldly land/icescapes the artist explores the fragile yet
steadfast nature of the world. The artwork walks the line between the calm and the
chaotic, questioning how we can view the world in such an oppositional way.
Whereby, she creates a consensus with two completely diverging aspects. Often L.
Montgomery adds geometric structure, however higgledy-piggledy, to her land and
icescapes: highlighting the underlying robustness of the otherwise frail and delicate
forms.

Concentrating her focus on one aspect of the landscape, placing it into a vacuum,
allows for the very human feeling of unease. Giving human aspects to natural motifs
plays a large part in doing this the colours of the landscapes for example are more
akin to bruising which gives points of contact with the viewers own humanity and
world.
Materials and techniques play a large role in the artist’s work, Montgomery
experiments with new ways of drawing with inks and paints. She uses materials
against themselves using the propensity of the materials to repel or attract one and
other, this also relays back to ideas of oppositional existence.
The exhibition attempts to bring together two oppositional aspects of life, creating a
disordered beauty. It exhibits both the durability and fragility of nature and life itself.

 

Montgomery was one of our many talented artists who took part in our 2018 Showcase and we are delighted to have them back again for their very own solo show!

BIODIVERSITY // SIOBHAN HEALY AND ALASDAIR GRAY

FLOORPLAN AND PRICELIST

Healy and Gray have known each other for most of Healy’s life. They collaborated on a stained glass window for Clackmannanshire Council in 2009.

Healy and Gray have never exhibited their artwork together in an exhibition, before now. Through Healy’s connection with Butterfly Conservation, they visited the developing wildflower meadow in Pollock Park, Glasgow in 2017.  Following a day planting seeds and plants for the planned urban meadow in Pollock Park, it led to discussions regarding the developing wildflower meadow to encourage biodiversity and to also highlight the work being done at Pollock Park and in other urban environments.

 

Siobhan Healy was one of the many talented artists who were part of our group exhibition 2018 Showcase, and we are extremely excited to have them back for their newest exhibition!

IN DEFENCE OF EXCESSIVE SLEEPING // EILIDH MORRIS

9th March – 6th April

FLOORPLAN & PRICE LIST

Eilidh Morris encourages their self-conscious to work through automatic art-making and expressive use of colour. The creative practice of making imagination art relies on honest self-representation and a belief that there are no real accidents in terms of content. A psychological element is always present and brings greater introspection on completion of a drawing or painting.  Eilidh describes it as imagination art and hopes to evoke conversation and fascination through the dream-like chaos that unfurls on canvas.

‘In Defence of Excessive Sleeping’ is a collection of artworks reflective of Eilidh’s varied artistic styles.  The title refers to Morris’ mental health and the positive effect ‘excessive sleeping’ has on the imagination. Perhaps it is okay to sleep for 15 hours if the result is a burst of curious invention. Each piece tells a different story but all were created in a very emotive and fluid artistic process using paints, pro-markers and POSCA pens. This includes autobiographical portraits such as “Maple Cabin” based on a trip to Canada, and “Paisley 2014”,the latter of which blurs a line between memory and nightmare. Also included are creations which exist wholly in a fantasy realm, such as “It’s Waking Up,” which depicts a huge ‘King Worm’ arising from its slumber in a deep, dark cave, and “Theia”, an imagined portrait of a powerful cosmic being.

Eilidh recently brought their multi-coloured imagination to life with the design and painting of a large, unicorn-themed rhino sculpture in Hamilton’s “The Big Stampede” public art trail in summer of 2017. This was eventually auctioned in aid of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity. Also in 2018, Eilidh’s graphite piece “Spinal” was published in North-east Scotland’s Magazine of New Writing, “Pushing out the Boat”, and the illustration “Hyper-Stimulation” was featured in mental health charity Subconscious’ pop-up exhibition in San Francisco to help raise awareness and eradicate stigma associated with mental illness.

“In Defence of Excessive Sleeping” is Morris’ first solo exhibition.

REMAINING COLOURS // SHAKIR MUGHAL

9th February – 8th March

FLOORPLAN AND PRICE LIST 

Remaining Colours is a series of work which is derived from Shakir Mughal’s previous exhibitions (Chasing Colours – 2016; Blinking Colours – 2015; Dreaming Colours – 2014), sharing a divine affiliation with colour.

“In this work, I have created many forms and shapes with colours in a conceptual way by merging different layers of colours and produced a variety of colourful patterns, differentiating colours and their movements.

Remaining Colours represents the colours that have been left behind during previous exhibitions. However, it is not different from past work. It is produced in the same method and techniques in a very contemporary and abstract way by using colours as a tool to express inner catharsis.”

Be sure to check out Shakir’s work from Friday 9th February.
