Artwork of the Week is this three part print by Cameron Morgan and Charlie Hammond. You can find this print hanging in the gallery until April 7th. The exhibition, ‘Danglers of Today’ is the culmination of a twelve week residency collaboration between the two artists. Not Everything Matches is just one of several prints inspired by an old collection of match boxes. It’s a flash exhibtion so it won’t be around for long! You can read more about the exhibition below or visit the exhibition webpage:
This exhibition is a result of a collaboration between Charlie Hammond and Cameron Morgan. It takes inspiration from a collection of match boxes.
“Like many good collaborations we started with no clear direction but found our way through action, the work itself the result of these ongoing and very natural conversations.” – Charlie Hammond
Whilst working in Charlie’s studio, Cameron came across three books Charlie had previously found in a second hand shop. The books contain a vast collection of old cardboard match boxes. Many of the limited edition prints are inspired by these match box cases and much of the scaled-up imagery is borrowed from their retro designs and colour palettes. Further works in the exhibition have evolved as the artists began to think about what other items are found in one’s pockets. Loose change, also known as ‘danglers’ are portrayed in the same oversized manner.
In addition to the prints made by Cameron and Charlie, Cameron has made a small series of over-sized ceramic match sticks to accompany the prints.Our Gallery II showcases a selection of Cameron’s slip-cast ceramic telephones, originally made for exhibition at the Tramway in 2016, via an Unlimited commission.
Artist talk: Friday 06 April, 12pm-1pm. All welcome.
This project is supported by a development grant Cameron received from Creative Scotland.
