BEHIND THE MIRROR
Richard Demarco Gallery, Edinburgh
The mirror in the title refers to the real
thing — a two-way mirror which both disguises and reveals (depending on
the lighting) a full size model print
workshop. This exhibition, complete with
theatrical lighting, mirrors, music and the more conventional elements of
prints, drawings and sculpture, has
come out of a project for homeless
people in Aberdeen.
The organisers, the founder of the
Cyrenians Print Workshop and his
assistant, were at pains that this
should not be seen as a charitable
exercise. A professional show they aimed for and a professional show is what they have got. For, despite the
added attractions, the work on
exhibition here displays dignity, a joy
of life and buoyant energy.

screenprinting, Sadie Main makes images with as much insight as they have simplicity. ‘Dracula gave us a bad name‘ refers to her flying purple bats and her little dog Benjie cavorts around his sleeping portrait. James Mcnobb's steam ship sailing past a camel has also has verve and a lack of self-consciousness.
Willie Ewen, a man who has seen the world as a sailor, pinpoints memory in small strange sculptures made of bits and pieces he has collected or found around him. ‘A Chinese—Toast Rack’ frames his portrait and holds the symbol of a boiled egg and toast, while the Tipsy Elephant stands firm. They are little jewels of honest philosophy. There are photographs too. Meg Maitland makes a lighthouse study while Graeme Smith finds mystery in woodland. A delightful exhibition full of surprises and life. (Alice Baln)
