Mary Bourne's stone and slate carvings show a love oi Scottish countryside. Beautifully tactile. with textured and polished suriaces. her sandstone resembles a small. periectiy iormed piece oi the Earth's suriace. with a ring at ridged conilers cushioned by mottled hills.

The third artist. Australian Louise Turmlne. has left Earth behind her and gone into orbit: herwork, based on computer graphics. studies “the hydrodynamics oi processes responsible ior rock iragmentatlon by expiosives.’ Remnlscent of Pop Art and Mondrian. she uses brilliant colour and chunky black line to create vast abstract canvasses. ‘Modal Detonation' is made up oi concentric shapes with warm yellows and reds radiating out to cool blues and greens. mimicking a heat-sensitive scan. She may soon boldly go where low painters have been belore and generate her art solely by computer. without reproducing it in paint.
