|Eye Splice by Rowena Comrie|
Gallery director, Joan Hughson, who is staging this exhibition in her home gallery in Glasgow’s west end, first saw Comrie’s work when she was a finalist in the last ever Aspect Prize.
“I first encountered Rowena’s work in January at the Fleming Collection in London where she exhibited along with the other three finalists,” says Hughson, an experienced curator with a long pedigree in the scottish arts scene.
Comrie moved to Glasgow from Aberdeen in 2009, and now works from a studio at the WASPS complex in the Briggait.
Sailing on the Firth of Clyde has been a major source of experience which has fed into her art in recent months, and it is no accident that nautical vocabulary has supplied titles for most of the works in this exhibition. She explains: “The work is a response to the extreme weather and exhilarating conditions that occurred, in particular sailing through the night.”
