RENDER at Six Foot Gallery
10th January 2017 – 24th January 2017
Six Foot Gallery’s Render presents a series of works by three artists spanning sculpture, photography and collage.
Central to the concerns of the artists is their desire to establish an interactive relationship between viewer and maker; be that through touch, the adoption of a playful and imaginative gaze or through invitation to traverse both internal and worldly landscapes.
Craig Black makes physical his personal experiences of comfort, fear and pain, creating an opportunity for new dialogue on love and loss. This dialogue is realised though his unique touch, from hand drawn line to tactile objects. The viewer is invited to participate by adding the warmth of their hands to his sculptures.
Curious Wonders, a selection of photographs by Louise Dautheribes Mckerl, invites the viewer to experience the fragments of her travels through the US, France, Scotland and Jamaica. In the frame and out of it, the call of the road captured by Dautheribes seeks to spark our own imaginings.
Glasgow based artist Richard Martin‘s collage works create a sense of familiarity and equal unease. In his cuts and process of recording there exists both a continuity and a disjunction with the world as an image.
By establishing an environment in which narrative and experiential fragments can be connected by visitors, Render sees these disparate works meet.
