Ciara Philips - Glasgow International
Glasgow Print Studio First Floor Gallery
Exhibition Runs: 20th April - 3rd June
Preview: 19th April
For Glasgow International 2018 Glasgow Print Studio presents a print installation by long term studio member and recent Turner Prize nominee Ciara Phillips.
Phillips’ practice, which addresses issues around women’s representation and self-actualisation, takes an experimental and process focussed approach to printmaking. Working primarily in the medium of screenprint, her artworks combine text, photography and abstract forms to create work with a strong aesthetic and conceptual voice.
For this exhibition Phillips works with GPS Master Printers Scott Campbell and Ian McNicol to produce screenprints, etchings and monoprints.
