The Absolutely Other: Exhibition of Prints by Mary Modeen18. Jan - 15. Mar 14 / ended Edinburgh Printmakers
This installation of prints features work made up of overlays of visual memory that mix landscape and suggestions of witnessing. These are layered together to suggest forms of awareness in which landscape and metaphysical states share equal attention. Printmaking processes lend themselves to ways of working where the image is constructed in layers, and it is this approach to process in these works that allows them to produce complex, subtle but interwoven images with rich associations of places and time. We usually ‘see’ by looking outwards; but in these images the external world merges with the internal life of the mind. Qualities of other places and other times merge together in colourful harmonies and poetic association. This exhibition includes new work commissioned and published by Edinburgh Printmakers.

Artist Talk by Mary Modeen
Printing the Enigmatic
Saturday 18 January 2014, 2-3pm, Free. Booking is essential, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0131 557 2479.
This artist’s talk will directly address the works in the exhibition. Modeen will talk about the reasons why she has developed the particular approaches or processes that she has in order to arrive at the type of imagery she is interested in making. Philosophy, memory, belonging and the contemplation of place-based thinking will be discussed. The prints themselves provide the ground for questions and answers, and each image invites the viewer’s participation.
