#DearGreeenPlace Exhibition, Thistle Gallery 19th March – April 3 2016

There’s nothing like a deadline to get some new work done… and with the opportunity to display a few pieces in this exhibition at the Thistle gallery in Glasgow’s West End, I set out to finish the image below. I had been thinking about this for a while and persevered with the layout until I was happy with it… All the characters here have been photographed within different contexts in Glasgow – the police playing football, a man watching the demolition from the Red Road Flats, street life photographed in Glasgow and brought together within this image. Hopefully the piece will resonate with others. To me it is a response to our perceptions of the city, its ideals and people…how the city addresses its built environment and communities. In the background is a repeated high-rise icon of Glasgow’s Maryhill Wyndford Estate. It offers hope for the future whilst not forgetting the mistakes of the past. I will also be exhibiting a few other of my tenement prints that respond to the Dear Green Place theme and  photographs of Glasgow scenes. Limited prints are available – please do be in touch if interested.

It’s great to be exhibiting work alongside other artists, and hope my work looks good amongst such good company! The exhibition opens on Saturday 19th and runs for a few weeks until the 3rd April. Please come down and have a look!
