Work by an artist from Tayport is being showcased at a prestigious exhibition. Two etchings by artist printmaker Claire McVinnie have gone on display at the annual exhibition hosted by the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts.
Both images are of horses playing in the Sonoron Desert, Arizona, where Claire spent some time a couple of years ago.
Fellow Tayport artists Will MacLean and Marian Leven, along with Marj Bond from Gateside, also have work on show.
The exhibition runs at the Mitchell in Glasgow until Sunday, November 29.
I am a North Fife artist who graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art 15 Years ago with a B des (HONS) Illustration & Printmaking.
Since then I have worked in just about every medium available from metal, clay & recycled objects/packaging to photography & film. This journey took me full circle back to printmaking when I was offered a job in Dundee Contemporary Arts Print Studio 7 years ago. I embraced this opportunity to work as the Studio Co-ordinator on a job share basis as it allows me to continue creating my own artwork, but whether I’m on or off duty – I can usually be found in the Print Studio!
I enjoy all kinds of printmaking but specialize in screen printing & photo etching. Both are very different & it’s good to have so many options for one idea.
I create my images in a variety of ways such as drawing, mono printing or using photography & manipulating the image using Photoshop.
I love to join old traditional methods of printmaking with more modern techniques of image creation in my endeavour to amuse myself & others.
