RENDER / 12th – 24th January 2017

Six Foot Gallery’s Render presents a series of works by three artists spanning sculpture, photography and collage.

Central to the concerns of the artists is their desire to establish an interactive relationship between viewer and maker; be that through touch, the adoption of a playful and imaginative gaze or through invitation to transverse both internal and worldly landscapes.

Craig Black makes physical his personal experiences of comfort, fear and pain, creating an opportunity for new dialogue on love and loss. This dialogue is realised though his unique touch, from hand drawn line to tactile objects. The viewer is invited to participate by adding the warmth of their hands to his sculptures.

Curious Wonders, a selection of photographs by Louise Dautheribes Mckerl, invites the viewer to experience the fragments of her travels through the US, France, Scotland and Jamaica. In the frame and out of it, the call of the road captured by Dautheribes seeks to spark our own imaginings.

Glasgow based artist Richard Martin‘s collage works create a sense of familiarity and equal unease. In his cuts and process of recording there exists both a continuity and a disjunction with the world as an image.

By establishing an environment in which narrative and experiential fragments can be connected by visitors, Render sees these disparate works meet.

Best of Degree Show: Joanne Dawson

“The best thing I learnt from art school is to value your peers and be a support network for one another. You’ll end up learning thorough them.”

Joanne is interested by the ‘things’ we engage with in ordinary situations. Everydayness being subverted by foregrounding its support – how it is encountered contextually and in the way it is presented. The physical work she produces is a double of what already exists, a metaphysical reflection on society, with objects that attempt to locate the position they aspire to copy, maybe as a soft replication or of an indication to something else. Working primarily through the use of sculpture, installation, and printmaking, Dawson deals with the functionalities of the commonplace, intervention and object through site-specific research. On Joanne’s agenda next is beginning to work towards a number of shows including G-unit in the Savoy Center, Glasgow, and the Embassy Graduate Show in Edinburgh in September. She currently has a shared studio at Crownpoint Studios in the East End of Glasgow.
