What art have I seen? Stories Real and Imagined, Research and Practice, OMOS

Posted in Exhibitions by chrisfremantle on September 30, 2022

Sam Ainsley’s exploration of relations, body to world, micro to macro, pattern to image… One of the really important figures in Scottish art as artist, teacher and leader.

The exhibition resulting from RSA Residency Awards:

Victoria Clare Bernie – exploring an 18thCentury donation of three works by a woman artist whose biography was unknown

Samantha Clark’s ambient works on water and space

Joel Dixon’s experimental photography

Flore Gardner’s and Robert Powell’s variously quirky works

MV Brown’s snapshots queering and challenging our understanding of countryside, nircely complemented by the OMOS installation of video and photography taking drag into the Scottish landscape.

What art have I seen? New Contemporaries

Posted in Exhibitions by chrisfremantle on April 2, 2019

Karolina Bachanek

New Contemporaries at the Royal Scottish Academy. Many talented, ambitious and provocative recent graduates from Scottish Art Schools. Very much the spirit of the age. Bachanek’s (Gray’s) environment made of supermarket and other plastic bags creating a seedy chill-out space – mind/life of a dosser or reality for an art school graduate? Plants that don’t want to be touched. Amateur research library as art.
