. is _ Edinburgh painting by Irina Zatulovskaya
Group shows and Irina Zatulovskaya: Morning Prayers, 369 Gallery, Edinburgh.
The 369 has packed In more artists than should be possible lorthe exhibitions leading up to Christmas and yet somehow a sense oi space has been maintained where the work needs it. On the top lloor Is a show oi work on paper by the artists who have studios in the building. Given the diversity and dilierences between those artists, this show oi modestly sized work hangs together extremely well.
Working on paper otten provokes a greater sense oi Intimacy between the artist and the viewer than is the case when more publicly grand techniques are used - like the diﬂerence between hand-writing a love-letter and word-processing a business letter. That intimacy is lound In most oi the exhibits here.
It’s interesting then to see how some oi the same artists cope when moving into paint, but retaining a small scale, In the Small Pictures tor Christmas exhibition In the loyer. The relationship between the tradition oi paint on canvas, the Scottish colourlst/gestural tradition, and the small scale, requires carelul negotiation.
In the main ground "our gallery is an exhibition by Irina Zatulovskaya, a Moscow-based artist who has been using one oi the 369 studios for the past couple oi months. The work is very spare and simple, though not simplistic, and rooted in a tradition lar removed from the one in evidence next door. Icon painters would understand the impulse Ior these works; so too would Malevich, who (while producing work that is conceptually light years irom that oi Zatulovskaya) based hlmsell aesthetically and
composltlonally in the traditions ol the
The work is lyrical, the content resonating with Russian literature. Titles such as Woodcutter, God Save Us, elrch Tree and Rejoice give literal descriptions at the paintings, but it is a shame that the words painted onto the canvas are not translated anywhere for non-Russian readers. Zatulovskaya’s texts are not illustrated by her painting, but rather set up interesting and poetic iuxtaposltions. Without access to them (even it indirect) it Is as it hall the work is missing.
0n the iirst iloor is work by sixteen oi this year's graduates irom the Scottish art schools. Andrea Roe, Michael Goode, Pamela Montlord and Shauna Mciiugh, all working in very dillerent ways, look as though they will be around lor some time to come. (Hilary Robinson)
