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

13th April – 10th May

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.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!
