Notes from Summer – Joseph Glover, Lottie Hampson, & Joseph Wilson, 4th April – 27th May 2017.
Notes From Summer is a showcase of recent work by three artists: Joseph Glover, Lottie Hampson and Joseph Wilson, whose practice is thematically tied by their interest in photography’s distinctive ability to forge a liminal stasis, through the interruption of ‘time’ and the framing of space.
Summer passed; summer past.
Engaging with surroundings both known and unknown, each photographer documents the individual undulation of personal memories: time passed, time passing, time spent, time worrying, time enjoying, time forgetting, time missed, time longed for; time that will come around again.
On display is a collective response to each moment of this time gone by, and time as it now stands.
Notes from summer, a mark of memory.
About the artists
After graduating with first class honours from the Edinburgh College of Art’s Photography Ba (Hons) course in 2016, he acquired two prestigious accolades: the Edinburgh College of Art Purchase Prize, and selected participant of RSA New Contemporaries 2017.
His current art practice explores the symbiotic relationship between image and text, which as well as featuring in his individual work, as on display here, also features in his collaborative work with poet Fred Spoliar, under the title, ‘Photographs and Poems’.
Lottie recently graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a first class degree in Photography.
Using mainly analogue techniques to slow down the way of viewing her surroundings, she builds a sense of place through observations of light, landscapes, and fragments of the people that inhabit them. Central to her images is an exploration of time passing; a quiet meditation on the relationship we hold to our encompassing environments.
As well as photographic prints, Lottie also works with alternative printing processes, such as photo etching, photo intaglio and cyanotypes.
Lottie currently resides in London, where she continues to photograph and experiment with new ways of presenting her work.
Joseph Wilson’s photographs observe the scale of abstraction contained within contemporary landscape. Wilson works with these liminal spaces in an effort to situate – within the paradise of the camera frame – anthropic abstractions against entropic natural order.
