In June 2017, Cass Art in Glasgow city centre hosted a solo exhibition of my kaleidoscopic collages inspired by architecture. I was joined by Christine Shaw who’s pop- up exhibition was inspired by the art and design of Japan.
Chris and I both studied textiles at Duncan Of Jordanstone College of Art Dundee and graduated within a year of each other. We have remained lifelong friends. This was the first time we had collaborated to organise and curate a joint exhibition. Although our careers went in different directions, our passion for art and design and in particular textiles was reflected in our work on display.
The images below give a snapshot of the work on display at the exhibition. The last two photographs are watercolours inspired by Glasgow architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson and were completed in the gallery, during the exhibition.
