The Alchemy Experiment in Glasgow is hosting the debut solo show by Rory Kennedy, whose illustrations and acrylic and gouache paintings are characterised by sweeping shadows and contrasting colours, capturing the light as it transforms the shapes of buildings and figures in that golden hour between night and day. A graduate in graphic design from the City of Glasgow College, he borrows from scenes from his travels in Scotland, combining small details from here and there into a reimagined painted collage. His work feels uncanny, dream-like and familiar, even though many of the locations are not actually real.
