STRUCTURE & MATERIAL
Becky Beasley   Claire Barclay   Karla Black
 
An Arts Council Collection exhibition curated by Katrina Brown (Common Guild) and Caroline Douglas
 
Structure & Material investigates the work of three significant young artists who each investigate the way we create meaning through form. Unlikely sculptural materials such as cosmetics, sugar paper, blackboard paint and brass hinges, or craft in the form of tapestry, are employed to diverse and distinctive effect. From elements that are sometimes meagre or over-familiar, new forms are created that are mysterious and highly evocative.
 
Structure & Material features a comprehensive body of work by each artist and includes recent acquisitions from the Arts Council Collection and installations made in response to Longside Gallery.
