l’RINlMAKlNU ALIVE 8: PRINTING - THE 3RD DECADE Art Gallery & Museum, Kelvingrove, until Sun 15 Sep 000

Ex Voto by John Byrne

Here is a veritable Who’s Who of the crucial as well as celebrated contemporary artists in Scotland. Prints by David Shrigley and Christine Borland are part of the so-called ‘Habitat’ series and nearby you’ll find the work of Adrian Wisznewski and John Byrne, Peter Howson and Kenny Hunter. It’s a testament to the Glasgow Print Studio, a modest institution marking 30 years with this vast display, that so many have delved into printmaking

under its auspices.

Among those well established in the medium, Elizabeth Blackadder gets her due with a set of her delicately coloured flowers and some etches of Rome. Across from them (although under-represented here) is the don of Scottish printmaking, Philip Reeves, one of the studio’s founders.

By intentionally concentrating on the last decade, the walls inevitably feature a host of younger artists on the rise: Ian McNichol’s aptly titled Basic Symbols and precisely drawn snippets of Glasgow streetscapes; Ashley Cook’s signature screenprints of clashing colour and juxtaposed iconography; and John MacKenchie’s detail of shimmering skyscrapers which recall the opening title sequence of North by Northwest.

But this feels like a gallery show rather than an art exhibition. While giving much deserved exposure to the Print Studio, undoubtedly introducing artists to a new audience, no explanation of the works or those who created them is offered: context is invariably lost and their contributions within the greater art milieu unacknowledged. That is a missed opportunity given that the hundreds of daily visitors to Kelvingrove many quite possibly unaware of the King Street galleries and artists across town could have benefited from

knowing more. (Barry Shelby)
