Glasgow Print Studio is pleased to present Oscillate, Vacillate, Orbit & Revolve, an exhibition of new paintings and prints by Glasgow based artist Alasdair Wallace.
Oscillate, Vacillate, Orbit & Revolve represents Wallace's first major solo show in Glasgow in over twenty years. An important strand of this new work examines the parallel processes across painting and printmaking, where they overlap and diverge and how they can inform each other. The influence of his recent experimentations in printmaking has led to his use of systematic painting techniques alongside his more usual instinctive and reactive approach.
Over his career Wallace has distilled a unique vision. One touched with humour, mystery and a subtle sense of pathos. Though the work often intrigues and baffles in equal measure his affinity with materials, openness of form and the accessibility of familiar motifs, invites audiences to engage with the work imaginatively and form significances of their own.
