A passage of light or striation of colour that glows within main body unites the works by Dundee-based painter Robert McGilvray and Edinburgh-based glass-artist Alison Jardine. 'There is a crack in everything... that’s how the light gets in.' (L Cohen). Alison works with powdered glass creating sculptural layered pieces that feature lines reminiscent of the striations found in natural rock formations. Robert’s semi-abstract paintings are based on the memory of experiences rooted in real landscapes. His paintings alternate between the dark and rugged landscape of the west and the flat, light typography reminiscent of the east of Scotland.
