Edinburgh Printmakers At ROSL (ROSL Arts)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

This peculiar exhibition is situated on the staircase of Edinburgh’s Royal Over-Seas League building. Therefore, the beauty of this work by some of Edinburgh’s best printmakers is at times difficult to fully absorb due to the comings and goings of people on the stairs, for the building is very much in use for other reasons. There are, however, definitely many pieces worth braving the bustle for; this reviewer’s particular favourites are; ‘Behold, the earth giant has risen!’ by Matthew Carey Simos which is a particularly charming example of linocut work, and Ian Ferguson’s ‘Deep Space’, an etching that one could get completely lost in. Artwork this good deserves more pomp and ceremony than it is here given.

Royal Over-Seas League, until 26 Aug, 10.00am.
