The symposium will offer the unusual opportunity to meet and share discussions with a large number of the Group’s artists, as well as giving Group members the chance to meet and interact with their viewers. Six pertinent topics will be discussed in small informal focus groups to encourage interaction.

A Thread Runs Through It

July 24, 2012

‘A Thread Runs Through It’ is a new commission for Airdrie Community Health Centre, east of Glasgow, Scotland. The three large-scale works are sited in the reception and entrance areas, and aim to encapsulate key aspects of Airdrie’s past in bold, abstract compositions that make reference to astronomy, blotting paper, baking and confectionery, linen weaving and ironwork foundries. Screen-printed and stencilled on linen, the imagery is applied in layers, gradually building up and stripping away colour.
