Alison Turnbull's contemporary abstract paintings, from star charts and architectural plans, distil colour, rhythm and pattern to create images of startling clarity. They stress the inherent aesthetic qualities of information, otherwise presumed to have a purely functional quality, while demonstrating how the process of painting can record analytical and intuitive relationships. This exhibition includes new work, a survey of many of the artist's works on paper, recent paintings and, in the Round Room, a new site-specific work, based on Werner's Nomenclature of Colours and Minerals from National Museums Scotland. A fully illustrated catalogue will be available from April.
