The German Woodcut in the 20th Century Until Wed 29 Jan. From Kandinsky to Baselitz. the German woodcut has enjoyed popularity with artists throughout the 20th century. As expressionism flourished in response to the social. political and economic instability of the pre-World War One period. the woodcut became used as a means of original artistic expression. Kirchner. Ileckel and Schmidt-Rottlufpresent the harsh realities of the human condition. Kandinsky and Marc were more concerned with symbolism and space. This exhibition follows the woodcut through social and artistic changes in Germany over the past eighty years ending with inﬂuential contemporary figures such as Beuys and Baselitz.

O HUNTERIAN MUSEUM The
DECEPTIVE COLOUR CARNIVAL
At lirst glance, Peter Wilson's work
' (Glasgow Print Studio) seems a riotous
celebration at lite and colour. However at closer inspection, the carnival mood
turns sour. Heads are too big or too
tightly squashed together, hands are
. bizarrely contorted and the intense
i competition between background and
loreground almost hurts the eye. Wilson began as an abstract painter
i in the 1960s but this exhibition tocuses on more recent work from 1979
onwards. ‘The Fitting‘, which he describes as an ‘exorcism‘, is the first in a series oi ligurative paintings which recapture the stilling atmosphere at the gents outiitters where Wilson spent three years belore going to Glasgow School at Art. As the salesman smoothly clasps his victim, the
E customer gesticulates helplessly and
bares his teeth. Birds occupy a peculiar
place in Wilson‘s work: in ‘Origins of
the Airlorce' they are the righttul
l owners ol the skies but elsewhere they
become a malevolent suffocating presence. The artist’s studio at the top at a ﬂour mill in Rutland is lrequently invaded by birds - they even attack his paintings - and he coniessesto
moments at Hitchcockian paranoia. Wilson’s latest pictures are both
considerably larger in scale and
technically more experimental with
huge brush strokes and splodges ot paint. The idea 01 a lragmented society iinds expression not only in the
\. wise.” f( .~ '
