Artists in Residence
Ross Hamilton Frew is a Scottish artist working with drawing, collage, ceramics and assemblage. He often uses predetermined or self- imposed rules in his work and has an interest in geometry, utopias and world-building. Whilst in residence at House for an Art Lover Frew will be working on his project ‘An Island, An Astronomical Object...’,
Throughout the month he will be developing a series of ceramic works, based metaphorically on the foliage found on Ascension Island, a mid-Atlantic volcanic island with a plethora of invasive plant species which continually fight each other for dominance. As well as this, Frew will develop a number of flags for fictional Islands, using the five basic principles of flag design created by the North American Vexillological Association.
These strands will come together for an exhibition at House for an Art Lover in March 2018.
ARTincubator - Jordan Munro and Winnie Herbstein
March – October 2017
Jordan graduated from the Sculpture department at Edinburgh College of Art in 2015. Working across various forms including object fabrication, installation and video, his works focuses on materiality, questioning notions of cultural value, relevance and currency within contemporary culture.
Adopting or appropriating the aesthetics and processes from manufactured (mass) production into the creation of often minimal or singular or gestural works, he seeks to understand or interpret the histories of various objects, inviting discussion into their state of manipulated historical significance - allowing viewers to question the way images are broadcast and circulated, and the way they might be understood within contexts such as an archive, museum, or culturally significant space.
This opportunity has been supported by Creative Scotland's Open Fund.
Winnie is a graduate from the Environmental Art programme at the Glasgow School of Art.
Working across a range of media including video, text, performance, sculpture and installation, she seeks to investigate the silences and gaps in our ‘official’ narratives.
Solo shows include Before I could speak, X spoke at Outpost Gallery, Norwich (2017) and Soft Shoulder at SWG3 Gallery, Glasgow (2016). Recent group shows include Domestic Observations at Jace Space, LA (2016) and Bit Between Teeth at Sattler and Potszch, Leipzig (2016).
