Contemporary London based artists Rushka Gray and Laura Mckinley come together to unveil new work in, 'A Slant Of Light'. The exhibition brings two starkly different mediums of Glass and Print on paper in the same space to explore the similar themes within the Artists work.
Working primarily through the medium of Printmaking, Rushka Gray likes to challenge ways of using traditional techniques – etching, collage – emboss, relief. Her new series ‘Impossible Bodies’ are, figurative expose’s applied to textural surfaces. Her new works have been utilising images and etching plates imperfectly, countering the presupposed expectation of pulling the ‘’technically perfect’’ print.
Laura McKinley is an exiting young and emerging Glass Artist. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and recently showed at 'Young Masters' in London, which recognised the next generation of glass talent. Symbiosis explores the relationship between two interconnected blown forms which are mutually dependant on the others existence for balance and stability.
Each blown piece embodies its own character which is accentuated through the process of cutting and polishing, thereby exposing voids which enable the viewer to see both the internal and exterior spaces.
