The Mission - Art and design for curious minds

I ended my day trip to Edinburgh with a visit to The Mission, a relatively new contemporary art space in Edinburgh.

"The Mission Art + Design Gallery specialises in affordable artwork from independent artists. We sell fine art canvases, art prints, unique design gifts, art books, stationery, design-centered children’s toys and clothing."

"The Mission is a relaxed mid-century influenced gallery space. Magazines such as Baseline, Elephant, Frame etc can provide inspiration while you relax on our comfy leather sofa, and decide which original piece of art you would love to hang in your own home."

The gallery is also a place for making - gallery co-owner Suzanne Taylor can be found at the easel in the gallery working on her latest painting.

The gallery exhibits work by a number of artists and designers such as San Francisco-based, Max Spector, illustrator Maria Janosko and visual artist Suzanne Taylor.

I was familiar with Suzanne's recent figurative work, but had never seen her abstract paintings before, and was drawn to the colours and layers within the paintings. They have a real depth, and are extremely tactile and physical. I see comparisons between them and some of my photographs of surfaces of doors and walls.
