Artwork of the Week - ‘Tea Party’ by Consuelo Servan & Jonathan McKinstry

This week, we are very pleased to bring you 'Tea Party', screenprint, pencil and ink on canvas by ReSearch collaborators Consuelo Servan and Jonathan McKinstry. 

Consuelo and Jonathan embarked on a shared studio approach during their ReSearch project. Jonathan placed his comic drawings of characters and scenarios directly onto Consuelo's photographic prints of the Aspire studio, which appear as tonal studies showing variations of changing light throughout the day. 

Consuelo comments on their shared working practice,
"We experimented with batik technique a lot. First, it was just me. I wanted to change background colour and add some sizing, adding wax around frame. There was a point when Jonathan showed some interest about it and started experimenting, of course in a completely different way. Again, the mix worked."

Don't miss the other works in this series, showing as part of 'It is Now' in Trongate 103's foyer space until 4 April.
