Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover is pleased to present Looking for Signs: ideas and imagined circumstances an exhibition by Scottish artist and designer Jimmy Cosgrove (b1939) in which he presents new work alongside a selection of past works spanning some fifty years of a vibrant career in the visual arts.
The exhibition provides a long overdue and intimate insight into the diversity of Cosgrove’s practice introducing audiences to the themes and style of Cosgrove’s practice – namely that of process; materials; and techniques, explored through real and imagined subject matter - and how these elements remain constant and recognisable characteristics within his substantive bodies of work.
Populated by a selection of sketchbooks; travel diaries; screen-printed textiles; posters; photographs; drawings; paintings; collage and text, the exhibition will familiarise audiences with Cosgrove’s keen observation of people and places he has encountered, all re-imagined through a personal lens imbued with spontaneous and constructed narratives that all reflect his immense curiosity in the exploration of ideas.
Curated by Alison Harley & Fraser Taylor (The Textile Collective).
