The Craignish Trust has now supported Cove Park for eight years. This year the Trust’s generosity has made possible a six-week residency for the Glasgow-based visual artist Lorna Macintyre.
Cove Park’s Emerging Artists programme provides artists with the support required to develop new work at a key stage in their careers. Previous residents on this programme include Pio Abad, Giles Bailey, Sara Barker, Lucy Clout, Nick Evans, Ross Hamilton Frew, Sophie Mackfall and Charlotte Prodger.
Working primarily in sculpture and photographic prints, Lorna Macintyre is particularly interested in the relationship between materials and language. She explores this relationship by teasing out connections between the physicality of the materials she works with and the themes or ideas that lend the work its structure.
During her residency Lorna will develop new ideas and experiment with different techniques and processes. This research will inform the development of a body of new work for forthcoming exhibitions in 2014.
