Art listings

In our regular column. a team of mystery artists give their thoughts on the current art scene.


With every broom cupboard and derelict shop in Edinburgh turning into a festival venue in August. it was as hard as ever to find direction. let alone some of the venues. Once you fought your way through the crowds of name-badge coach parties and dodged your way through the constant flyer fire. yoo might have arrived intact. Only then would you find that the show had sold out before the festival had even started.

With the top performers in the best venues charging more than a Harvey Nicks espresso. it was almost impossible to schedule your life to see all the shows yOu wanted. Luckily. there was a venue showing some of the top performers in Britain and abroad and all for free. The venue was the lngleby Gallery and its festival exhibition, Abstraction (which ends on 7 September) is a display of abstract painting that any fan would pay to see.

The show puts a series of ancient artefacts alongside these paintings creating rather interesting associations. the linear qualities of these objects reflected in some of the works. There is an excellent cross- section of painting from process- based work such as that of Ian Davenport through to laborious COIOured grid works such as that of James Hugonin.

That said. it seems sad that they haven't used this as an opportunity for some of the lesser-known stars of the future to make their mark. With the festival becoming such a well- oiled machine and bigger names performing. we have to remember that the Fringe was an opportunity for unknowns to break through and get noticed. l just wish such a well-established gallery would take a risk and give the less established artists more of a voice.
