. H ’1 “3 ii I Collins Gallery, Glasgow. Oladele Bamgboye, Anne Elliott and Annie Cattrell in The Colour oi Your Voice.
Engaging with the ditterent mediums oi photography, drawing/painting and sculpture, commonalities can be iound between these three artists in that each shares a concern with the possibilities of a visual language influenced by personal history and communication with sell in a transmutative way.
The photographic works at Oladele Bamgboye use his body, belongings and home as beginning at an exploration of identity and the subjective meaning oi interiors which are both self-determined and objectively observed. Just like the construction at memory-hazy, illusory and ambiguous, Bamgboye employs the techniques oi multi-layered negatives, oiten underexposed, to create images which are both sensitive and intimate yet always tluid. Whether using his bed, nude body or personal belongings such as photographs and plants, he meditates upon their personal meaning and power in a mannerwhich avoids alienation.
Anne Elliott’s charcoal drawings and paintings, expressionist in style, show
Charcoal drawing -Anne Elliot
Sculpture— Annie Cattrell
the intensity at emotional lite —anger, sadness, exploitation— in a way which uses the application of paint and the building up at layers as a psychological process. Portraits ol iriends, lover and herseli, isolated and strong, capture the entanglements of personal expenence.
Annie Cattrell seeks to ‘rellect the transience and vulnerability’ or day to day living in hersculpture. Using a range at materials, trom steel wool and padded silk to leathers and mirrors, she creates surrealistic objects exploring disharmony through combinations ot ditlering materials and geometric structures which make relerence to the concentric nature at organic farms and the linearity of architecture.
The exhibition coheres well despite the institutional removal of some at Bamgboye's photographs on account at their representation of male nudity. This reinforces the importance of the work in dealing with male experience, which in his photography always remains intimate and relational and certainly does not attend the female gaze. A thought provoking exhibition. (Lorna J. Waite)
