Our Artwork of the Week is this series of four paintings titled ‘Four Seasons’ by Stuart Low. To accompany these paintings on board, the artist has written a short and beautifully thought provoking piece of text :
Wandering lost in the black and white of nothing
I came across the seasons and they made colour.
There was nothing until summer came and went.
As I watched the years go and the people around me
grow older. This is only one year out of many as the
leaves blow and the snow falls and stars shine
Heat goes to cold to heat again and dry to wet and back.
Green to white and blue to yellow, all in this space we call time.
We just love this writing and the way it softens the graphic paintings which it embodies.
This work is part of our current group exhibition title ‘Extraordinary Responses’ and it is up in our gallery at Trongate 103 until the end of the day on Saturday (tomorrow!).
