This is a joint exhibition of work produced by Jacqui Higgs and Aileen Paton.
The opening of this exhibition is on the 9th of November between 7pm and 9pm, we hope to see you there.
Jacqui Higgs SSA: is an Edinburgh based, Dublin born artist. Many of the drawings and paintings I am showing have been developed from recent visits to Kirkudbright and the nearby location of the remote Greensands. Salvaged materials, structured surfaces and storm damage debris occasionally enter into the pieces (done in situ), (small glimpses of screen prints can be seen under some of the work). Paintings from a residency in Portugal (2018) and Majorca also included for this exhibition.
AAPaton: My work focuses on the twin concepts of palimpsest and erasure, using newspapers and other publications. My technique begins with a process of reduction and redaction, excising most , but not all text and images so that only the basic scaffolding of a newspaper remains leaving only a trace of its original form.
