Here is a selection of my favourite pieces from the DJCAD show. There are lots!
At first glance this piece doesn’t look like much, I guess. But I really liked it because it is quite in line with my love of the unseen and my pieces on the white walls. Making something of that which is ordinarily overlooked is right up my street.
I liked this installation too because it makes an example of accidental and natural, beautiful occurences. I think this was Liam Dunn’s space…we talked about how this was his work space all year, and how it felt right to incorporate it into his final show. It really reminded me of SKYSPACE.
Layla Rose Cowan, whose work you can, of course, see as part of Any. And. Or
Gabriele Jogelaite, who won the Bernard Cooper Memorial Prize for printmaking this year (I won it last year 🙂 )
Morag Cullens, whose work reminded me of DJCAD graduate KATIE JOHNSTON’s work
Matt Wilson, the lithography master.
Vivienne Russell (I think)
Duncan Perkins/Rusty Robin
Sarah Rowntree (sorry sorry sorry for putting the name wrong on this!)
After Amsterdam came my exhibition at The West House (which is still showing, if anyone hasn’t managed to see it yet!). Here are the photos from install.
The frames for the two prints above were made by Dundee based framer Ross Mathieson. If anyone is looking for frames to be made I would absolutely recommend him – both his prices and the quality of his work are unbeatable.
More to come on this – I have been so busy I haven’t had chance to take official photos!
Artist and fellow graduate of DJCAD Sylvia Law posted a link to this article on facebook. It pretty much summarises some of the ideas from my dissertation On The Subjectivity of Space.
IN SEARCH OF SACRED PLACES
Fallen Tree, Nature Reserve near Ashkirk
“Finding relevance, even a kind of sacredness, in public space captivates Marriage. ‘It might not be universality,’ she said in answer to Mehrotra. ‘But it’s still that transformation to something else…'”
Ladies and gentlemen! I have excellent and somewhat secretive news! For the past few weeks a group of ladies and myself have been working towards an exhibition proposal. On Saturday we found out that we have our gallery! So our plans are to go ahead, and next June we will be the proprietors, if only for a week or two, of the Coburg House Studio Gallery in Leith, Edinburgh.
That’s all you’re getting for now! But expect press releases and starlights in the new year.
