You and your guest are invited to attend a preview of this exhibition on:

Friday 31 March, 6-8pm

Glasgow Print Studio First Floor Gallery

Exhibition runs 01 April - 14 May 2017

Curator: Claire Forsyth


What I am trying to get across is that material is a means of communication.

That listening to it, not dominating it makes us truly active, that is: to be active, be passive.

The finer tuned we are to it, the closer we come to art. Anni Albers, 1982.

Taking its theme from the lecture 'Material As Metaphor' (1982) by Anni Albers, this exhibition focuses on supporting early career artists while exploring what it means to make art, who it speaks to and how materials guide ideas. Materials are here presented as a means of communication, inviting the viewer to explore their role in terms of the human experience whilst highlighting the importance of interaction with materials when creating works of art. Artists working predominantly in print but also ceramics, sculpture and textiles will show alongside each other with a shared mission to “include others in that life that is invisible and intangible.”

Exhibiting artists:
Euphrosyne Andrews

The Jerusalem Palimpsest


No city is legitimate if it takes away the dignity of those who live there. Garbiel Vallecillo Marques, Honduran film maker.


A palimpsest, by definition entails the erasure of what was there before, of what was in the past and claiming the foundation (either a parchment or monumental brass plaque) for re-use.


The artist gratefully acknowledges financial assistance for the residencies from the Royal Scottish Academy Gilies Bequest Fund, Glasgow Print Studio Staff Development Fund and BI-Arts (British Council, Tel Aviv).
