Glasgow International - Oxford House - Kate V Robertson and Carol Rhodes
Two beautifully considered solo exhibitions (by Kate V Robertson and Carol Rhodes) are housed within the quirky 'chicken-liver pate' coloured building that is Oxford House.
Rhodes is known for her small-scale paintings depicting, from an aerial perspective, encounters between nature and human settlement. This show focuses on works made since 2007 and includes a number of the preparatory drawings that Rhodes makes for each of her paintings. These have rarely been exhibited anywhere and are for the first time being presented in direct dialogue with her paintings. The intention is to reveal the deeply layered and rich complexity of Rhodes’s practice.
The colour palette of many of the paintings is ideally suited to the tones of the gallery space.
