Alex Frost

Alex Frost - Reproduction

First Floor Gallery
Exhibition runs: 5th April - 18th May 2014

Artist Talk: Saturday 12th April at 2pm, First Floor Gallery. Admission Free.

Alex Frost’s exhibition at Glasgow Print Studio investigates themes of multiplicity, uniqueness and reproduction. This new work is based on the playful use of references, processes and materials dually referencing the nature of print and the current baby boom.

From his position as a childless male artist, Frost has analysed the points of intersection between image reproduction and human/social reproduction. The resultant artworks respond to both their immediate context of an exhibition within a specialist print studio complex and the social context of recently increasing birth rates in Britain. This continues on from previous works that address the particularities of the site - its location, it's former use or its role within a community. He is not working from a critical distance but from a more conflicted position.

featured artist

Featured artist - Dominic Snyder

Ground Floor Gallery
Exhibition runs: 4th - 27th April 2014


Dominic Snyder’s recent work over the last two years has been sourcing movement and dance through directly observed experimental and free flowing drawing. This has been a significant shift in his previous approach, which has led to many new developments and possibilities for his work. Drawings have been translated into fine art prints, using mainly drypoint and screenprint.

Performance by 'The Snyver Project'
'The Snyver Project' is a creative partnership between Dominic Snyder and Penny Chivas, a dance artist. For the last two years Snyder and Chivas have worked together on several residencies, resulting in performances, installations and exhibitions. Their latest short piece, 'Wired', will be performed at 6.30pm during the preview.
