Ingleby Gallery in Edinburgh’s New Town is setting its sights on reopening towards the end of April with an exhibition of the Glassworks of Glasgow-based Kevin Harman. The show is already available online, but the work is hung, ready for visitors.

Despite their impressionistic quality, reminiscent of Turner, the works are rooted in the urban environment of 21st-century Glasgow: from his Govan studio, Harman reclaims and recycles construction materials, by salvaging discarded double-glazing units and mis-tinted household paints, splitting the toughened glass panels apart, and pouring and layering the paint onto both of the inside surfaces. Repeating the process results in luminous and delicate forms, belying the ordinariness of their materials, and the physically-demanding process of the works’ manufacture. A book is available to accompany the exhibition, introduced with a conversation between the artist and Irvine Welsh, and a film is available online showing the artist walking through his exhibition.
