Stephen Healy & Roscoe Thomson at Dunoon Burgh Hall
Opening: Friday 31 August 6-7.30pm

(gallery closed Saturday 1st September)

This exhibition presents two bodies of works by image-makers Stephen Healy and Roscoe Thomson. These artists are connected through their work to Street Level’s facilities, either through making the work there or in having had a platform for their practice.

Stephen Healy is an artist based in Dunoon, previous exhibitions include Tabula Rasa II at Street Level Photoworks in 2016.

Nature is a body of work influenced by painting, with its approach towards subject matter and spatial composition, borrowing obliquely from the abstract expressionist movement with the use of the ‘Rothko’ square format. The hand printed process allows Healy to uniquely mark each print with its own identity – embracing accidents in the printing process and incorporating them with the completed work.

Roscoe Thomson is a photographer based in Glasgow, his work was exhibited at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock last year.

A Glasgow Fair recalls the city’s traditional holiday fortnight by re-imagining stories passed down through generations like precious family heirlooms. It is created from the memories of people and places as experienced by others rather than any kind of then-and-now style comparison.

It is an impressionistic work illustrating the blurred lines between reality and fiction. It has been made by retracing a series of journeys to various towns including Dunoon, Millport, Rothesay, Largs, Southbeach, Saltcoats.

Opening Times: Tues – Sat 12 noon – 4pm. Sun 1pm – 4pm

This exhibition is programmed as part of Season of Photography 2018 in Scotland which runs from 1st September to 30th November.
