Alice Boyle “COMING ALIVE”

In Association with Linlithgow Burgh Halls; Alice Boyle Presents ‘COMING ALIVE’.

Go with your feelings – and embrace the sheer joy of these works – Giles Sutherland – The Times – 2017

Expect to be challenged, emotionally touched and frequently amused – Vivien Devlin – ArtMag – 2017

I’m sure this vivacious and engaging woman will continue to produce more evocative collections – Phyllis McLeish – Ayrshire Magazine 2016

Coming Alive is a new body of work by Edinburgh-based artist, Alice Boyle. For many years, Boyle has sketched after daily meditation, creating odd and often distorted creatures that come streaming to mind as soon as the pencil hits the paper.  In the spring of 2018 she decided to bring these characters to life, creating a unique world that is as strange as it is familiar.

Boyle’s new work has been inspired by the title of the artist’s previous exhibition, ‘Think Less, Feel More’. While her past show was a comment on the relationship between thinking and feeling and what that might look like, here, Alice has chosen to take a less complex approach, and run with an idea that felt powerful yet simple.

Rendition Preview

Invitation To Edinburgh Palette

I would like to invite you to a preview launch of Rendition, a radical new work from Tragic Carpet Visual Theatre Company – Friday 13th September in Edinburgh, 10.30am-12.20pm.

Rendition is a potent and immersive installation which uses detailed, up-to-the-minute academic research findings from The Rendition Project to tell the story of one man’s nightmare experience as the first suspect to be taken into the CIA’s detention programme. Freda O’Byrne, artistic director and sole performer, uses an innovative mix of puppetry, soundscapes and theatre to visualise the human rights violations committed by US and UK governments in the aftermath of 9/11 – and explores the juxtaposition between extreme vulnerability and absolute power. See the trailer here.

In partnership with Freedom From Torture Edinburgh, the preview event will provide the opportunity to visit the installation within the gallery, meet the creative team and view the accompanying immersive performance. Tickets are limited so please register here.

“…a profoundly moving piece of total theatre… beautiful, exquisitely made show driven by a quiet but fierce sense of humanity and compassion”

Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman ★★★★

“At a time when we await the outcome of a Scottish police investigation into the use of Scottish airports for rendition, and after the UK Intelligence and Security Committee published a devastating report into the extent of British involvement in torture, many issues remain unresolved”

Professor Ruth Blakeley, The Rendition Project (It is anticipated that Professor Blakeley will be able to attend the preview and discuss these issues.)

Rendition will tour Scotland in autumn 2020. The performance is ideal for galleries, community spaces, studios and exhibition spaces, and can work in theatres too. Please get in touch for more information.

Sophia Ann West at Flamingosaurus Rex

Sophia WestLaunching Friday 10th February, Flamingosaurus Rex is proud to host the presentation of a new body of work by Sophia Ann West.

An exploration of colour, tone and dimension, from canvas to glass – the exhibition might best be described as a journey of encapsulation.

That most evocative of nature’s moods, the sunset, is Sophia’s inspiration; canvas the vehicle by which it takes shape. Pockets of colour and form are then captured and extruded, reborn into their native dimension by a process of transmutation at the hands of the glass artist. more
