Arnolfini tour

Arnolfini tour

Last weekend I was asked to give a tour at the Arnolfini, Bristol’s main contemporary arts centre. The current summer show is split across 5 galleries. Gallery one featured work by New York artists, Eileen Quilan and Cheyney Thompson – who are husband and wife team. All the other galleries were taken up by Glasgow born artist Lucy McKenzie.

Although I was not blown away by anything in either show, Eileens photographs taken with analogue cameras and only using smoke and mirrors as the subject are growing on me (pictured above). Even though they are not a “new” idea there are some nice images of her work here.
