Here is our Arcadia by Audrey Grant and Orbiteering by Alasdair Wallace form a two-person showcase of work by Audrey Grant and Alasdair Wallace – winners of the Tatha Gallery Exhibition prize at The Scottish Society of Artists (SSA) open exhibition 2019.
The two outstanding artists have many things in common including an intense dedication to practice and ideas, painterliness and imagination, and their opposing styles and concepts provide an engaging and energetic counterpoint.
In Audrey Grant’s work, images and ideas of Arcadia fold and unfold. Oil paint is repeatedly layered and moulded; powerful emotion is added to the mix to embody the compelling nature of Figure and Sea. They speak confidently of physicality and passion and the process is visible and raw.
Alasdair Wallace takes a fascinating approach to paint and concept. Time becomes important giving room for images and ideas to travel and oscillate. His imagery and process is organic; growing and orbiting until it is resolved to ‘make sense.’ The fluidity of acrylic and affinity to his medium brings about fresh and exciting ways of seeing the world.
