Fragments and False Starts

[Gallery Text]

Fragments and False Starts is an exhibition by Scottish artist, Graham Lister, at Studio Pavilion. It features recent drawings and paintings, that explore how layering, organising, planning, repeating gestures and simplifying are all core parts of what happens in his studio. Studios are spaces where artists make and think and talk and write. Where they look and succeed and fail and eat and sleep and start afresh and draw and paint. Where they rest and work and don’t work …






The exhibition is accompanied by a limited edition publication, featuring new essays by national and international artists Sarah Arriagada, Rowan Bazley, Dale Holmes, Amanda Thomson and Fraser Whiting, about the ways that artists use (and don’t use) the studio as a place for making and thinking. Fragments and False Starts is supported by Creative Scotland.
