My solo exhibition at Atria One opened here in Edinburgh last Friday. The show has been curated and hung by the lovely Ilaria and Amy from Edinburgh Printmakers and, although the building isn’t open to the general public most of the work can be viewed on the Edinburgh Printmakers website https://edinburghprintmakers.co.uk/artists/65-christine-sloman/.
The Society of Scottish Artists Annual Exhibition opened at the Royal Scottish Academy last night. This is one of the largest regular contemporary art shows in Scotland. The exhibition is produced and funded entirely by artists with no public funding and will be open until the 10th of January 2023.
I’m very happy to be showing three of my memory box pieces – Memory Box X, XI and XIII. I can’t remember what happened to Memory Box XII.
North is the current Visual Arts Scotland members exhibition, now on at the Inverness Creative Academy until the 21st of December. My artist book Keepsake is on show there.
Kinship is the current exhibition at Edinburgh Printmakers where I am showing my artist book Lost Voices (a foreign country). This is a concertina style binding with 11 monotypes worked from found photographs of children. Although they probably lived long and vivid lives their identities are now lost – for me calling into question the validity of photography as a permanent record.
Pattern:Books is the annual artist bookmakers exhibition at the Upright Gallery here in Edinburgh. I am showing Seven Pieces, a concertina style binding made with collaged monotypes, which have been printed directly from leaves, seeds and feathers etc – some of nature’s patterns. They have then been arranged in the classic seven piece tangram form.
My artist book The Rest is Memory is being shown as part of the curated hang at the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair this year. The live show ends today, but will remain online for the next two weeks. It’s a real must see for contemporary print aficionados.
