Lines from Scotland

About Lines from Scotland

The art of Scottish drawing is celebrated in Lines from Scotland a new exhibition featuring work by three generations of painters, sculptors, textile designers, musicians and makers including rarely seen works by Elizabeth Blackadder, Andy Goldsworthy, Dorothy Hogg, David Shrigley and Inge Thomson among others.

Lines from Scotland, which is curated by Amanda Game in collaboration with Diana Sykes of Fife Contemporary, invites us to appreciate the ‘modesty and mastery’ in selected works by 23 artists.

Hand-drawn pencil and ink lines share space with lines from the etching press, and lines incised into ceramic surfaces; some lines are modelled in wire or woven as threads; lines are animated, scored as music and shaped into words and poems.

Gain 'insights to complement' Lines from Scotland at Fife Contemporary's Virtual Venue.
