Gordon Cockburn and Ronald Rae
Joint retrospective – a conversation over five decades
The Converge:Diverge exhibition follows the path of the two Ayrshire artists, who met in the 1970’s and became lifelong friends. Both artists recognised a desire to capture the heights and depths of the human soul, exploring subjects outwith the mainstream. The artists’ transcendent achievement is an ability to use gesture, line and form to shortcut emotional expression. in a spontaneous expressionistic style. They worked closely together in the 1970’s (the ‘converge’ concept), and the exhibition then follows the subsequent development of each artist (‘diverge’).
Rae’s tableau of images in ‘found books’ will be exhibited for the first time with the aid of slide shows, showing the contents in sumptuous detail.
Entry is free.
