Distilled at Gallery Heinzel in Aberdeen features work from the 2021 Gray’s School of Art Degree Show, which was largely unseen by the public due to Covid restrictions. The whole class was invited to take part and at least one piece will be exhibited by all those who submitted work with more on the gallery website.
Says Gallery Heinzel director Maura Tighe: ‘It kept preying on my mind that the Degree Show had passed and hardly anyone had experienced it. I really felt for the students and wondered what I could do to alleviate some of the disappointment they’d experienced… These students have experienced a challenge unimaginable 18 months ago. Their work reflects that in so many ways. The scale is smaller than usual and there are unusual choices of media, because they were forced to work alone, remotely and often in their childhood bedrooms.’
