EXPO ‘Elizabeth Jane Campbell’ – The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh (UK) – 4-30 Avril 2014

We are delighted to present Elizabeth Jane Campbell‘s debut showcase at The Scottish Gallery.

 

Elizabeth Jane Campbell  "Circle Square Traingle"Elizabeth Jane Campbell  « Circle Square Traingle » 2013 -Silver, ceramic honeycomb, vitreous enamel

W:6.5cm H:6.5cm D:1.5cm

Elizabeth graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2013 and this is her first showcase at The Scottish Gallery. She was recently awarded the Guild of Enamellers’ 2014 Bursary and the Scottish Incorporation of Goldsmiths Bursary by Edinburgh College of Art. Elizabeth is currently Artist in Residence at Glasgow School of Art.
Her creative process is informed by concepts of visual literacy. The dot, line, shape, direction and colour are all crucial factors as they act as a language for us to read and understand our surroundings.
Elizabeth is attracted to enamel because of its methodical process which allows her to achieve colour, pattern and texture in a formal and structured way. Her love of this technique has led her to explore alternative materials in her work not normally associated with enamelling such as the ceramic honeycomb. She uniquely uses this material as a carving block which enables Elizabeth to create tactile and sculptural forms enhanced by colourful enamels.

EXPO ‘Windswept’ – The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh (UK) – 5-29 Juin 2013

Windswept - Heather Woof

05 Jun 2013 – 29 Jun 2013

Heather Woof is a recent graduate from Edinburgh College of art.

Heather’s current ‘windswept’ collection has been inspired by the wild Scottish weather and is reminiscent of the powerful natural forces which shape the landscape around us. Working with hand cut titanium and mild steel the artist aims to evoke a sense of dynamism in these otherwise static materials. She tries to capture a sense of fluid movement in hard and unyielding metal, to create sculptural pieces, which appear to have been quite literally blown over by the wind.

EXPO ‘Stephen Bottomley: Retrospective’ – The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh (UK) – 7-28 Nov. 2012

Stephen Bottomley: Retrospective

Born in Norwich 1967, he studied at Farnham then Brighton, before graduating from the Royal College of Art, London in 2001. For more than twenty years Stephen Bottomley has reflected an emerging digital age in the creation of contemporary jewellery with a quietly confident minimalist beauty.

The work in this exhibition spans the two decades each side of the turn of the Millennium, a period that most clearly witnessed the gradual shift across many craft practices as digital possibilities were explored and accepted. Clarity of line, simplicity of form and pattern are all trademarks of his jewellery made with the traditional skills of Goldsmiths interwoven with the then newly emergent computercontrolled tools of design and manufacture. It is work that does not rely on technological innovation alone, but has at is root an original aesthetic authenticity and a love of material.

DECOUVERTE : Kirsty SUMERLING

Kirsty SUMERLING

« Recent graduate from Edinburgh College of Art, my work has developed from research into transient beauty and impermanence. Combining shards of decay with contemporary structure, I am interested in the contrast between the indeterminate results of patina and the controlled process of workmanship. Intrigued by the effects of time and decay, especially places and objects that have fallen into a state of disrepair I explore this condition in enamel, playing with both control and unpredictability. Structures frame embedded patina and change within a surface, indicating that a transformation has occurred over a period of time. The resulting work is unpredictable and unexpected; a product of a process deliberately out of my control. Undetermined paintings of rust-coloured patterns, created by nature and left to chance, are encased within liner frameworks. By isolating sections of a surface the viewer is compelled to focus on the unusual natural beauty framed within. »

COUP de COEUR ! Gloria CARLOS – hand forged jewelry

« I have been making work for over 30 years as a sculptor, this has directly influened and translated into my jewellery. Working primarily with iron and gold, I am interested in the disparity between their values; one has a connection with opulence, the other with industry. Each piece of my work is hand forged and incorporates traditional and experimental metal smith techniques. I work intuitively exploring sculptural forms to create wearable ornaments. » Gloria Carlos (at the Scottish Gallery)
