The late Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925 -2006) forged a career as one of Scotland’s most successful and distinguished artists. Finlay was born and raised in both Glasgow and the Orkney Islands, but later moved to practice in Edinburgh where he became a founding member of the Concrete Poetry movement.
Katie Paterson is a Glasgow-born visual artist who graduated from ECA in 2004, before completing her MFA at the Slade School of Art three years later.
Now living and working in Berlin, Paterson’s practice is concerned with ecology, technology and astronomy. Throughout her career she has presented a body of work which has drifted from the physical landscapes of Earth, to the incalculability of the universe, often investigating the mysteries of our galaxy through a framework of scientific and conceptual projects. She uses the tangible object to capture the intangible nature of the cosmos and beyond.
