Earlier this year, Cameron Morgan started his third residency funded by Creative Scotland, this time with Glasgow-based artist Gregor Wright. The two artists worked together every Thursday in Wright’s studio near Trongate 103. From their collaboration emerged a series of paintings and experiments centered around the painting process.
“Working together was an opportunity to bring our different approaches to painting together and see what happened. I tend towards abstraction whereas Cameron has a more figurative way of working. As a starting point we chose the humble tea towel as drawing surface. Its connotations of daily domestic life seemed like a suitable beginning.
After we ran out of tea towels to draw on we took the ideas being generated onto larger canvas surfaces where we began to experiment more with materials. The painting process became the arena for our creative conversation as we each in turn responded to the input of the other. The result is a fusion of ideas, cultural references and working methods- an attempt to generate new ways of thinking and making.”
“I really enjoyed working with Gregor, we have a very different way of working. I tend to go like a bull in a China shop, he tends to think more. I learned to take a step back.”
We are pleased to present a flash exhibition of the work produced during Cameron Morgan and Gregor Wright‘s collaborative partnership, opening on Thursday 05 July and running until Saturday 07 July.
Reception: Thursday 05 July, 6pm-8pm.
Gregor Wright is represented by the Modern Institute. Cameron Morgan’s residency series are funded by Creative Scotland.
