An exhibition of work by three Cowal-based Scottish artists with European heritage; Inge Bos, Jane H Dee and Gabor Horvath. Inge Bos Inge Bos is a Dutch painter, based in Argyllshire. A graduate of Utrecht School of Art (1995) she has exhibited extensively in the Low Countries and Argyll Scotland as well as running an educational project consisting of painting and sculpture workshops as a basis for team building and self exploration. Inge’s work focuses on presence and environment-specific here and now. She makes photographs and sketches of landscapes, that she might identify structures in the interplay of dark and light. Structure evokes presence. Presence defines structure. Presence and structure together inhabit the moment and evokes memories, atavistic, collective memories, the experiencing of which sets the image in motion and alters reality from first impression (slowly) to deeper layers, Jane H Dee Jane’s work is influenced by her awareness of the divine in the everyday and our partnering journey to wholeness. Influenced by challenging and inspiring years lived overseas, Jane explores her own and others lived-experiences of this journey through a process she calls ‘mapping wholeness’, which visualises the interconnection of identity-story, surroundings and the Divine. Jane works reflectively, the mapping wholeness process and final piece iterated by community connection, meditation, exploring stories & surroundings, through sketching, photographing and journaling. In this regard her work refers implicitly to Bourriaud’s relational art ‘spreading out from its material form’ with both research, a catalyst for iterated understanding, and the final art capturing visualised perspectives of the divine in the ordinary, negotiated interconnectivity and belonging. As a Creative Practitioner, Jane’s work includes art making, design, textiles, décor, teaching and writing. She is largely self-taught and the art itself is a sensory journey through an interdisciplinary weaving together of processes, media and techniques. Previous work includes installations of wrought iron and ceramics, video and audio, portraits in chalk pastel and oil on charred wood, textiles, literal and stylized weaving, workshops and discussion events. Gabor Horvath Gabor is a collage artist based in Tighnabruaich. His creative process revolves around recycling discarded magazines and paper, exploring the endless possibilities of transforming what others might deem as trash into something of value. “While I have always worked with traditional collage techniques such as cutting and gluing, recent commissions have allowed me to experiment with new mediums and techniques such as spray paint, stencil, and mixed media. The unique colours, patterns, and images that I discover within these materials serve as my inspiration and guide my creative process. Creating my pieces is a time-consuming process that requires patience and attention to detail. Each piece requires sifting through hundreds of magazines to find just the right amount of colours or the perfect small image that can connect the overall piece. It’s a closed environment where I cannot choose the materials I work with, which forces me to adapt and push the limits of my creativity. One of the most fascinating aspects of my work is how each piece can be viewed from a distance as a complete image, yet upon closer inspection, it reveals hidden images, messages, and story lines. My art is a puzzle, and I invite my audience to take a closer look and become a part of the story.” Entry to our exhibitions is free but it does cost us money to bring them to Dunoon Hall. We would appreciate any donations to help us keep providing our exhibition program in the future.
