crossover [X .] inside/ outside
just as silver vinyl geese flew across the floor [2009 INSIDE VISION.] , Anna’s leaves fluttered across the gallery.
Here works have moveable boundaries which grew inside the Fruitmarket beyond the possibilites of her studio. [WALL DRAWING ‘Sound proofed’.]
‘something can grow in the installation process, expand in a gallery’.
She responds to THE OBJECT, the MATERIAL, and allows the production to be moulded by the process of creation.

TSIMSHIAN 1800- 1850′ Sea- Wolf’!!
an interesting topic to investingate, not empty because challenged.
Edmund Burke discusses the high over useage of the word ‘beautiful’ and often it seems correct to search for alternative summations to describe the balloon of The Sublime.
Beauty is to do with knowing that there is more there than there is (visible. Beneath the surface…)
David Batchelor: Colour diagrams.
Scottish accent: Tone
Mountain lake: L.S. Lowry 1943
tone, space, deep bird shaped lake, perspective, real deapth, is it that i know it was Lowry the good-at-painting-painter or is that that it is REALLY special, i hope the latter because i thought that.

a lot of odd
dreamy landscapes with brown light
WHISTLER’S NOCTURNS ARE AMAZING
SILVER, GOLD, GREY, GREEN
HE CALLED GREN SILVER? what he saw was silver and chose green to describe it..?
PIET MONDRIAN- UNEXPECTEDLY GOOD PAINTINGS- excellent light on the sea. TITLes: were eye opening mind linking.
‘Sea after sunset’: such a great illustration of those three words- that emotionally charged atmospheric space time. LIKE ULLAPOOL IN WINTER_ glOwiNG GREY! so exciting. deep dark blue sand, purple monsters rolling beneath the smooth surface.
big kind terrofying creatures
OF NATURAL AND MYSTICAL THINGS
RSA, EDINBURGH, 21ST OCT. 2012
I went to see Jamie Fitzpatrick and Ashley Nieuwenhuizen’s work, as we all graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone 2008/ 2009.
The exhibition contents varied in its entice-ablitity
Ashley’s drawings of the pigeons with zebra’s were mystical and beautiful
i felt like Jamies work was less coherent than i had hoped it might be. I had not seen it in reality since exhibiting beside each other at our degree show and then in The RSA New Contemporaries. When I look at his taxidermied creatures I feel like they are not quite well enough sculpted…the joins are not tight enough…
I IZ AN EXHIBISHUN BY…
