Market Gallery Residency - Day 29

Today has been a full day of work for me at Glasgow School of Art & the plan to paint the rest of the gallery floor this evening altered when B&Q had no more of the paint we used yesterday for the floor! Hopefully we can get the rest of the floor painted in the same colour tomorrow evening.

New Work by Helen Shaddock
Helen Shaddock has combined controlled processes with chance elements to create colourful sculptural forms and ‘object paintings’. This new body of work responds to the industrial environment of the gallery and investigates the space between painting and the three-dimensional.  Shaddock’s work stems from a curiosity with, and visual attraction to, colour, stripes, strata and natural and man-made patterns.
Solaris Simulacra
by Pauline McCloy and Rebecca Green
Solaris Simulacra, based on the 1961 Stanislaw Lem novel Solaris, is a collaborative art work consisting of performance, film and lighting installation which explores that which is considered ‘alien’ intelligence, and the predicament of the ignorance trap, a phenomenon that affects all species, and our own in a particularly tragic, comic and often predictable way.
The work features a 15 minute spoken word/object animation performance, entitled Cowboys and Aliens, which includes a reading of Lem’s original text in Polish. (On opening night at 7.30pm)
Meet the Artists
Helen Shaddock is a Glasgow based artist who graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2008 with a First class Honours Degree in Fine Art:Environmental Art. 'Shaddock has exhibited in national and international exhibitions, and her work is in a number of public and private collections. Selected solo exhibitions include Strength in numbers at The Briggait, Glasgow (2011), Coloured Matter, Here Gally, Bristol (2011) and Schema, Che Camille, Glasgow (2010). Forthcoming exhibitions include a solo-exhibition at Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre (September/ October 2013). Shaddock is the co –organiser of Glasgow International Artists' Bookfair held at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in 2008, 2010 and again in 2012. In May 2012 she was awarded Talent/Professional Development funding from Creative Scotland, and this exhibition is one of her outputs.

Pauline McCloy is an environmental artist and designer-maker, combining the techniques of design, visual art, sculpture and craft. She works with light as a central medium and theme, creating installations, objects and environments. Her current work examines the concept of emergence and aims to find an intersection between our man-made environments, the forms that exist universally in the natural world and the concepts we humanly try to construct in between.

Previous works include public art works, St. Cuthbert’s Gateway and Stonefield Park Gate installed throughout Lanarkshire. Pauline has worked as a traditional theatre designer for The Edinburgh Playhouse and as an experimental theatre producer for The National Trust Scotland and as assistant director of film/ gallery project Linda Fratianne for Alex Hetherington and CCA Glasgow. Object based works by Pauline have been exhibited internationally at Salone del Mobile, Milan, Desinersblock and London Design Week, London, The Lighthouse and The House for an Art Lover, Glasgow. She currently lives and works in Glasgow with time split between her own environmental arts practice, as creative director of design firm McCloy and McCloy and as frequent collaborator of Sha Nazir, as McCloy and Nazir, making art and design for the public realm.
Rebecca Green is an artist who works with overlaps and fusions of screen and theatre performance, spoken word, live art, writing, craft and participation. She maintains a diverse practice, which is intimate and universal, noted for its use of a mixture of improvised surreal intentions, extraterrestrial dreaming pathos, wilfully alluring insistent humour and a collision of empathic bewilderment amid a searing focus illuminating the natures of individual human interactions and relationships. Her ongoing project Scheduling Spontaneity seeks to establish connectivity through tokens of love, instinct and sentiment, while her spoken word performances and writing examine, among other things, accepted and absurd human conventions, the act of performance and the moments between performer and audience, deviant relationships and observations below the surfaces of everyday activities. She also played Mrs Dempsey in Alex Hetherington’s short film Linda Fratianne (2010), commissioned by the CCA, Glasgow, which has screened internationally and at Trongate 103, Generator Projects, and GFT. She also works regularly with the Edinburgh International Festival on their education programmes that have linked visual art practices with those in devised theatre. She currently lives and works in Edinburgh, Scotland.
