FESTIVAL ART —
MADE IN BRITAIN
Making It, Edinburgh College olArt This is a wide ranging and extensive show, covering all aspects of British applied and decorative arts and it looks well in the spacious sculpture court of the art college.
General themes or styles are almost impossible to pick out, so diverse is the work, but a few pieces particularly stand out, not least because of their vast scale. At one end of the room are two massive silk and wood sculptures by John Newton. They look like the sort of colourful, billowing sails you’d expect to find on a legendary Japanese
. ship, or the sort of prop which wouldn't
look out of place in one of the Ninagawa company's heavily stylized, very visual productions.
At the other end of the counyard there is also a piece predominantly made from silk, a big arching canopy by Linda Green. Its hard to imagine a practical use for it— something for a wedding reception perhaps- but it certainly creates a pleasant space, a bit like being inside a Bedouin tent.
It's cool and light and airy, and the pieces of work shown under the canopy —shelves, glass bowls, and tables— have been carefully chosen to set off it’s delicate, fragile style very well. (Sally Kinnes)
