The Prop Body by Terri Long at Six Foot Gallery
19th January 2016 – 28th January 2016
Six Foot Gallery is pleased to present work by our current Artist in Residence Terri Long. Long is currently based in London. Having worked for Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon and Peter Pilotto, Long’s expansive knowledge and experience in the fashion industry is a strong influence within her work. Her period of residency at Six Foot Gallery will allow her to visit some of Glasgow’s internationally renowned Museums and Galleries including the Burrell collection to conduct research into her extended practice of embroidery.
The Prop Body is a solo exhibition in which Long has used drawing to explore the fractious relationship of natural form and synthetic object. She hopes to use the period of residency at the gallery to challenge her reliance on a familiar location in the production of her work. The pressures of an unknown environment will require an adjustment and will dislodge the artist’s creative preoccupation with place, estranging her sense of belonging.
