IMAGES OF THE PAST
Glasgow Print Studio, Glasgow There is nothing morbid about Elspeth Lamb’s prints. It is true she pays tribute to the poet Sylvia Plath who committed suicide and she does have an attraction towards tombstones, but these moody subjects are given a royal treatment in ruby, turquoise and gold. Her black is not sinister, but the colour at a deep past. ‘Crossing the Water’, her solo at the ' Glasgow Print Studio is bright with images at time and mortality. Huge hourglasses hold sand enough tor centuries. Like an ocean bed, one contains ancient lossils while another is marked with the contour lines 01 a map, white on black, like an X-ray. Trips to the archaeological sites ol Crete have instilled legend and mythology into other prints. A creature, halt-human, halt-dog holds a golden hand open in reverence like a pagan icon and winged angels spout from the throats oi tishes. A lorelei trom other shores sings in purple and red. In some cases lithography blends with colle chine, a technique which
uses printed Japanese papers in a torn oi over—printed collage. Though a sensitive medium tor her subject matter, some of these prints have lost the strength at others in their complexity. Her best are those with a central, glowing image. (Alice Bain)
