The combination of intricate works by Alasdair Gray and Joyce Gunn Cairns, filling the gallery and pushing the walls outwards, feels like a powerful whirlwind that's circling the gallery. Enter through the door, and you feel like you are at the eye of the storm.
It feels calm and pure, but the outside influences, history, experience and weight behind these powerful works are disarming and impossible to ignore.
These two artists are literary heavy-weights. They have the knowledge, creativity and experience to create a world within each work that draws you in and possibly makes you see the world a little differently.
An exhibition of works by these two artists has created something that the gallery hasn't seen before. Layer upon layer and world upon world, I have never been so inspired to get back to the gallery to absorb, to read and to learn.
The exhibition hasn't even opened, but I already want to thank these two artists for enriching my experience.
The Private View is this Sunday 15 April from 2pm to 5pm. The artists will be present.
It promises to be a great celebration of the arts, and of course all art-lovers are welcome!
Thanks for reading!
