Goma goths banned - heaven knows they're miserable now

In a bid to move the youngsters on the council have cordoned off steps between Borders bookshop and the Gallery of Modern Art (Goma) - a favourite goth gathering point.

Does anyone else think this is a bit over the top?

Cath Keay – 1000 Tides

Cath will be running a casting project with our first year students early next month. keep an eye on the blog and our Flickr site for images from the project.

Cath Keay’s doctoral project builds on her previous, long-running work on bees and wax sculpture to investigate ways in which art and the natural world can interact, exploring dynamic natural processes that can influence the final form of a sculpture. Keay’s sculptural works provide a basis for animal colonisation in natural environments (a wax architectural sculpture in a beehive; terracotta text sculptures in the sea); over time it is possible to investigate the way in which these animal forms adapt to and alter the artworks, creating beauty in nature’s response to human intervention. Her work highlights the role of nature as collaborator in the creation of the artistic product.

Mark Melvin

What can be seen in Mark’s work throughout is a preoccupation with the work as process, and in turn looping, sequence and rhythmic iteration have been prominent in their construction. Repetition is evident in his practice and he often experiments with various cycles and levels of repetition, be it a discussion of the habitual and routine, investigations into recollection and memory or the use of music, the art of iteration.

Holly McCulloch


First up for Collective's New Work Scotland Programme 2007 (NWSP) is Glasgow School of Art graduate, Holly McCulloch. NWSP lies at the heart of Collective's Professional Development Programme and creates a dedicated three month period for the support and development of new artists in Scotland through exhibiting, writing and event opportunities.

Holly's exhibition features new work as part of an ongoing project where six basic colours of six dresses form the starting point for an investigation into the social and political meanings attached to colour. The drawings, sculpture and video featured in this installation describe the hierarchical statement of the colours in a mimicry of bureaucratic systems and institutional structures.

Nick Evans

The Glasgow-based sculptor Nick Evans’ recent solo show at Sorcha Dallas involved an unusual foray by the artist into almost total abstraction. Though the ‘Primitivist’ aesthetic of classical modernism had been strongly present in Evans’ past sculptures, his older works also incorporated conspicuous figurative elements (referencing Cubist-style nudes, for example). more
