Among the Cobwebs

Lynne Strachan

This exhibition consists of a new series of photogravure prints developed at the Highland Print Studio over the past two years. Lynne photographs abandoned buildings capturing the beauty of these places and translates them in to evocative prints.

“Old decaying architecture intrigues me, the textures and patterns remind me that everything is impermanent. Standing inside an abandoned building feels like the end of time.”

 

Lynne’s practice incorporates commissioned and self‐initiated work which explores the interaction between science, art and technology through presenting the forgotten or invisible as visible, focusing on the relationship between humans and the environment.

Lynne originally trained in Visual Communication and has worked for over twenty years in industry. She returned to education and graduated in 2015 with a First Class (Hons) Fine Art Degree at Moray School of Art UHI, Elgin where she is now a lecturer. She was selected for the New Graduate Award, which involved exhibiting a 200 bottle interactive sound installation at the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh, where she was presented with The Connell & Connell WS Prize. In 2018 she received a Visual Artist & Craft Maker Award to develop this series of work.
