Scott Lang, a former Connect artist who recently graduated from Glasgow Kelvin College, will be showing recent works in his first solo exhibition, Schementality, opening on Friday 24th July.

'My recent practice has drawn on Glasgow’s ‘traditional’ gang culture. Personal experience, having briefly joined a gang in my teenage years, informs and connects with my research. Although brief, my involvement with gangs has had a significant and prolonged effect which has influenced several aspects of my life.

My work has explored the many facets of Glasgow’s gang culture, the territorial nature of gangs, the associated status symbols, the multicultural makeup of contemporary gangs and the stereotypical representations of gang members. By addressing these stereotypes, I endeavour to add humorous elements to what can be a very dark subject.

I usually begin by creating photomontage images which I then explore in a variety of media, including various printmaking techniques and mixed media pieces. I often try to incorporate materials relevant to the subject matter; spray paint with stencilled images, for example, to reflect street/urban art and gang tag practice.'
