Eilidh McNair | Alignments

14 May – 8 July 2018

The Small Gallery, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary

Eilidh McNair is a Scottish based artist working across multiple disciplines, including drawing, sculpture and weaving. Her work explores the rules of perspective, geometric forms and architectural spaces, from large scale installations to intimate objects and works on paper. The manipulation of these conventions can create discord and illusion. Compositions typically feature overlapping perspectives, repetition and linear mark making. These allow the very act of looking to be explored as movement and illusion and yet are created on a flat surface with minimal marks. McNair works across a range of materials – from traditional clay, wood and thread through to video tape and Perspex.

McNair studied at Edinburgh College of Art and Saga College, Kyoto and completed her MA in Fine Art in 2004. She has exhibited in venues across Scotland and has regularly shown her work internationally. 

The Small Gallery exhibition for GHAT is a selection of her works on paper and wood, including new collaged watercolours. The exhibition entitled ‘Alignments’, reflects the artist’s interest in mixing 2D and 3D disciplines by incorporating collage and relief elements alongside hand drawn and painted surfaces. Works on paper incorporate geometric and crystalline forms, kaleidoscopic patterns and mirror images. The work created for this exhibition sees the artist develop her interest in colour theory and looking at the representation of nature through mathematics and geometry, such as the golden ratio.
