GHAT has commissioned new work for The Suttie Arts Space by 3 artists who work in similar ways
Fraser Gray is an Edinburgh based visual artist working across multiple media, but specialising in the production of paintings and murals.His works collage appropriated imagery through multiple languages of representation, and seek to explore the inherent content and meanings held within this imagery through its fragmentation, re-contextualization and translation. Fraser received an MFA in Contemporary Art Practice from Edinburgh College of Art in 2013 and a BA in Fine Art (First Class Hons) from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2008.
Robbie Hamilton graduated from Fine Art (BA honours) at Duncan of Jordanstone in 2014. He was selected to exhibit in the Royal Scottish Academies New Contemporaries exhibition the following year. Through many years of obsessive skateboarding Robbie Hamilton has been drawn to create works with the subjects of form and space.The use of utilitarian, raw materials is integral for different reasons; the link to skateboarding in urban areas- making the most out of what is found but also a desire to turn working materials from something homogeneous into something beautiful.
Mike Inglis is a practising artist and part time lecturer at Edinburgh college of art. He has created a series of permanent and temporary Public Art commissions across Scotland and has shown gallery based projects in a variety of Scottish Galleries as well as London, Amsterdam, Barcelona and New Dehli. His practice deals with and explores links between public art and outsider art. He enjoys making publicly sited work that explores transitional spaces that “outsider art” often inhabits as well as bleeding these practices into work for more traditional gallery spaces. He is interested in exploring ideas that surround superstitions and belief systems in a wide variety of outputs from drawing and printmaking to installation work.
