Material Rites presents new work in diverse media from a group of emerging and established Scottish based artists. Each of the artists selected demonstrate unique material aptitudes that impact upon the development of their work. They all engage with the material world around us in a different fashion. By bringing them together this exhibition emphasizes the influence materials can have on an artist and the work they create. Through a considered and coherent approach to investigating how material values are a force in each artist’s practice, Material Rites unearths the knowledge which can help give the viewer a fresh system of interpretation. The Exhibition is curated by Sandy Wood, the assistant curator for the Royal Scottish Academy.
The artists involved:
‘Bringing together for the first time, nine sculptors from Scotland, who work across the breadth of materials from traditional to new technologies, Material Rites is both an inspiration and a challenge to experience.’ Johannes von Stumm, President, Royal British Society of Sculptors.
