Think Less, Feel More
Howe Street Arts, 2 Howe Street, Edinburgh (Fringe Venue 97)
Running from July 25 – August 13
Open daily 10am – 7pm
Taking its title from art critic Waldemar Januszczak’s summation of the 2016 Abstract Expressionism exhibition at London’s Royal Academy (‘There’s not enough emotion in our art any more. We think too much and feel too little.’), Think Less, Feel More is the second solo exhibition in Edinburgh by the abstract painter Alice Boyle. Working with layers of plaster to give her works the feel of petroglyphs on ancient caves, Alice then makes marks into the fast-drying plaster with various tools, acting quickly to catch a sense of spontaneity. The resulting pieces seem to take on a life of their own.
