When we look in the mirror, what do we see? A perfect image of ourselves, maybe, just as we are. Except: our perceptions of our ‘selves’ are much bigger than that mirror reflection, aren’t they?
Previewing last Sunday night and now open to the public, EPT is proud to host brand new exhibition ‘Behind The Mirror’, showcasing the work of three recent graduates of Duncan of Jordanstone Art College as they explore ideas of the body and self through a diverse and exciting collection of figurative paintings.
Ex Eastwood High pupil David Wylie, who curates the exhibition explains: “‘Behind the Mirror’ features work by myself and three other Scottish visual artists. All of our work explores the idea of the body and self through the medium of paint. I am delighted that Katie Johnston, Katie MacKinnon and Martin McGuinness and I are all exhibiting together. Our individual styles vary greatly which provides a broad appeal to draw in visitors in to the exhibition.”
