"Shift: New Works by Alison Watt"
2000-11-18 until 2001-01-07
Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
Edinburgh, , UK United Kingdom

Alison Watt trained at Glasgow School of Art in the 1980's. She first came to public attention when, still a student, she won a competition to paint a portrait of the Queen Mother, and has subsequently become known for her paintings of figures in light-filled interiors. This exhibition is devoted to a new series of paintings depicting textiles.

Unusually for Watt there are no human figures in the works, although the manner in which the depicted material folds and hangs suggests the human form. As Watt explains, 'It's only in the last few years I've realised the power of suggestion: that's where the erotic lies'. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue.
