Edinburgh’s UNIONGallery is hosting All That Remains, the first joint exhibition by acclaimed Scottish artist Joyce Gunn Cairns MBE and North Carolina-based artist Marlo Michelle. Joyce Gunn Cairns MBE’s award-winning work is well-known and has been described by Richard Holloway as ‘…from a heart overwhelmed by the beauty of creation, and stunned by human cruelty and indifference towards it’; Artist, published writer and poet Marlo Michelle’s work is equally soulful – she describes her process of working as ‘…a lot like when I write a poem; I’m constantly, stealthily trying to do what Ted Hughes describes so well in his piece The Thought Fox:
‘I imagine this midnight moment’s forest:
Something else is alive
Beside the clock’s loneliness
And this blank page where my fingers move.’ “
