A graduate from the Glasgow School of Art 2019, Painting and Printmaking Department, Polly’s practice is centred on a metting between the real and the imaginary through dream narratives and cinematic aesthetics. She collects imagery from books, film and mythology, among other sources, to suggest ambiguous narratives reminiscent of film stills. Much of this is concerned with the transience of postmodern architecture: the offices and hotel chains that are as anonymous as they are universally familiar. Surrealist film and literature informs much of Polly’s practuce. Through painting she aims to expand space(s) into dreamscapes and show a reality warped by the imaginary.

Based in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, Kenny draws inspiration from local history and from a passion for hillwalking and mountain climbing. He enjoys using mixed media paints, watercolour and acrylic preferring to paint on a large canvas surface. Kenny says of his work, ‘I have been painting for the last 5 years, gradually improving my skills. Painting is a genuine escape from a busy life and is an excellent way to relax to look after my own mental health”. Culture NL looks forward to hosting and supporting this local artist’s work.
