We are pleased to present the work of 10 recent graduates representing the 5 Scottish Schools of Art.
Duncan of Jordanstone – Veera Krouglov presents an animation and ceramics based on an unravelling of themes, characters and personalities which she transforms into a fantastical caricature of life. Thomas Stephenson explores the environmental cost of fuelling our domestic lives through his fabrication of household appliances.
Edinburgh College of Art – Anya Gleizer explores themes of interior and exterior wilderness through performance and intermedia-installation. Kate Livingstone develops a nuanced language of layering and paint mixing techniques, combining traditional mediums with industrial varnishes, enamels and sprays creating a sense of the alchemic.

Glasgow School of Art – Eleanor Elks Herrmannsen’s aims through her sculpture to uncover certain truths about our relationship to the objects we choose to surround ourselves by. Xiqi Zhang sets out, through the action of her hands, to realise a world of dream where science and art can find a place to coexist.
Moray School of Art – Peter Ferguson looks at the experience and representation of the Hebridean weather through painting, photography and, more recently, sound recordings. Rachael Horsburgh discusses the history of female form; how it has changed and what it means to be a woman in today’s society.
