In the nineteenth century, long before the current era of fake news, Emily Dickinson wrote a meditation on truth in her poem 'Tell all the Truth but Tell it Slant'. With a title alluding to the poem, this exhibition of Julie Cockburn’s latest work similarly excavates authentic stories by circuitous means. Using a rich material language, Cockburn embarks on a visual journey to delicately reveal narrative histories and layered meanings in lost and discarded images. Cockburn partially obscures the images in a process she describes as “paradoxically unmasking” their intrinsic truths, layering and embellishing them with exquisitely hand-crafted embroidery, beading, vibrant screen printing and gestural flurries of paint.

Private view Wed Apr 15 6pm - 8pm
Scottish artist John Bellany is renowned for his pioneering painting style, which brought renewed attention to Scottish painting during the 1960s and went on to influence a new generation of artists. Focusing on Scottish history and symbolism, Bellany’s figurative works combined maritime imagery and christian iconography with representations of the lives of ordinary working people. This exhibition will bring together key works from across his career.
