Procession. [Oil and enamel on steel]

Gilmour, Lyndsey


Lyndsey Gilmour


This painting was exhibited at the SSA/VAS Open exhibition, 22 December 2019 - 30 January 2020, Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh. This installation attempted to respond to the architectural fixings within the Royal Scottish Academy Galleries. The artist began using the transportable painting, contained within the rectangular edge, and extended the imagery to create a site-responsive work. It was influenced by Daniel Burren’s theories “on the function of the studio”, where he states; The frame (museum/gallery) that receives the original work and all other original – that is, fundamentally heterogeneous – works must be adaptable, adapting itself to each work perfectly, to the millimetre…If the work has to be seen out with the studio…the definitive place of the work must be the work itself.
