I JOHN GREEN FINE ART 303 Bath Street.
Glasgow Print Studio
Contrary to what one might expect, the Second City‘s meteoric rise to Culture Capital has actually made it more ditticult for new and lesser-known artists to flourish; space has become more expensive and over-subscribed. This is a great pity, given the Merchant City‘s wealth of unacknowledged talent, as exemplified by Marie Barbour and Elise Allen’s exhibition in WASPS.
Barbour's woodcuts, reminiscent of Schmidt-Rottlul, Kathe Kollwitz and Otto Dix at their most penetrating, record aspects of Glasgow‘s transformation in the 803, or more specifically, as she explains, how people react to it. “The changes left a legacy of urban deprivation on the city‘s fringes engendering a crisis of identity. Recently I have become increasingly interested in women‘s reactions to this, especially to the consumerism, bland entertainment and dressing ‘numbing the senses’. Although positive representations are important too, such as when things are used to give conlidence.‘
This subject matter is most akin to Kollwitz, whose ‘draughtswomanship‘ she greatly admires, ‘the way she was able to represent woman so sensitively as well as sympathetically.‘
Barbour is well-accomplished in other medium; her pen and ink

drawings which also feature in this exhibition reveal a line tonality and dehcacy.
Elise Allen‘s canvases, paper batiks (using tempora ink and pastel as opposed to the traditional Javonese wax and dye), lithographs and screenprints are an excellent mystical complement to Barbour‘s trenchant work. Howeverthe impetus behind her surreal figurative compositions, of brilliantly lyrical colours, also shares something otthe spirit of Weimar; ‘I
wanted art that would speak simply and
directly, from the unconscious; uncorrupted and uncensored by the intellect.‘
The most apparent inlluences are not
German but Chagall and, to a lesser extent Picasso‘s symbolist Blue and Rose periods, but contemporary Englishman Ken Kitf is, she explains, the closest; ‘I could hardly call him an influence since I was already working along these lines when I saw his work, but he is also dealing with the unconscious and inner life in the same way, oftrying to work with it, rather than just record it; it‘s very warm and accepting.‘
A minor obsession with severed heads not withstanding, these are appropriate words for herown paintings, whose highly subjective nature has in common with Barbour‘s poignant and sympathetic works a quite remarkable intimacy. (Stewart Hennessey)
