Philip Reeves and Scott Campbell
Glasgow Print Studio, First Floor Gallery
Exhibition Runs: 2nd October - 7th November 2010
Preview: Friday 1st October, 6pm - 8pm
Scott Campbell works almost exclusively in the screenprinting medium to create abstract and colour field works. Campbell's in-depth understanding of colour, layering, the interplay of textures and mark making within screenprinting are evident in all of his works. He uses screenprint to innovate; he pushes the physical boundaries of the process and relies on instinct and experience to explore what can be achieved. Philip Reeves' printmaking displays a modern expressive abstraction, which is confidently conceived by experimentation with the process of intaglio printmaking. As well as experimenting with the possibilities of the etching plate, Reeves frequently employs found objects to use as the printing plate. Reeves was integral in establishing Scotland's vibrant printmaking scene as Head of Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art in the 1970’s and as a founder member of the Edinburgh Printmakers in 1967 and then Glasgow Print Studio in 1972. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and a Member of the Society of Scottish Artists.
