Upright Gallery I Re:Colour, Re:Shape

3 Barclay Terrace,
Edinburgh

This new show at Upright Gallery concentrates on abstraction and the interplay of form and colour. Ian Frank employs the logic of geometry to inform his work while John Taylor allows the role of chance to play a key factor.

Ian Frank worked in architecture as a practitioner and then a lecturer until 2000. On retirement he took up painting. His compositions draw on his background where each painting uses the ‘Root Two’ proportion along with the three primary colours, black and white.
John Taylor has always been drawn to the layering of found images, textures, patterns and shadows. His practice deconstructs initial visual inspiration and then re-imagines the original source to create something vibrant and playful.
