Two Artist Talks: Hetty Haxworth & Rosalind Lawless
12:30 on 9 March 2019
Glasgow Print Studio
Hetty Haxworth: 12.30 – 13.00
Rosalind Lawless: 14.00 – 14.30
Please join us for two artist talks to accompany our current exhibition, Rosalind Lawless | Hetty Haxworth : New Works
12.30: Hetty Haxworth discusses the work in the current exhibition – her inspirations, her techniques and practice.
“The everchanging colours and shapes of the Aberdeenshire landscape is the inspiration for this 2019 Exhibition. As the countryside alters with the seasons, the work responds to transient shifts of light, capturing moments in colour.”
Oxford born, Hetty Haxworth studied at the Glasgow School of Art and has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad. Her work has been shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts, The Scottish Society of Artists and selected touring shows to Ohio, Australia, LA, Denmark and Brussels. She now lives and works from a studio in rural Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
14.00: Rosalind Lawless will discuss her works in the exhibition, sharing the inspirations and processes behind her work.
“My practice is strongly influenced by my immediate surroundings. I use commonplace imagery to organise the pictorial space, using forms that occupy and give perspective within the substrate. I strive to physically construct the space within the composition of my work and aim to recreate the space whilst questioning ideas such as the relationship of form to material and symmetry/asymmetry, acknowledging the link between formal and abstract. The work revolves around a sense of history, of the spaces that inspire and the history of the journey making the work, this leads me to a connection between the spaces that I use to make the work and the work itself.”
Rosalind Lawless was born in Glasgow in 1978 and studied Fine Art Printmaking at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen from 1999 to 2002. She graduated with a Masters of Fine Art Printmaking from the Royal College of Art, London in 2004. In 2002 she won the Royal Scottish Academy John Kinross Award culminating in a three month scholarship to Florence. In 2003 she was winner of the Daler Rowney Drawing Prize Royal College of Art, London, in 2004 the Tim Mara Trust Award from the Royal College of Art and in 2005 the Joe Hargan Award Paisley Art Institute, Glasgow. In 2008 and 2009 she was the recipient of the Glasgow Art Club Fellowship Award and
