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.

ImageI 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.

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

“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…'”

ANY AND OR

Any And Or, Curation, Exhibitions

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.
