Kay Rosen, Memory of Red, 2008
KAY ROSEN GALLERY I - 31 July to 27 September
The Gallery will open with the first Scottish showing of work by American artist Kay Rosen. Rosen has been exploring the possibilities of words as images for over 25 years. She delights in the small shift; the subtle change that subverts meaning and reveals the unexpected. In her paintings, drawings, wall works, collages and editions she has used varied visual, grammatical, and typographical strategies to challenge the way people see and understand the words they read. For someone whose ammunition is the painted word she is also a very visual artist, using colour to articulate her ideas in a way that is often humorous, sometimes shocking, and frequently profound.
ART TALK: On Saturday 2 August at 12 noon, Kay Rosen will be in conversation with poet, Tom Clark. Coffee & croissants will be served. (The event is FREE, no booking required)
