Lorna Macintyre: Much Marcle
Art in the Bar
To accompany the forthcoming gallery exhibition ‘Sticky Intimacy: Katie Cuddon, Emma Hart & Nicholas Pope’, Scottish artist Lorna Macintyre has taken a series of photographs of Nicholas Pope’s house and studio in Herefordshire.
The silver gelatin prints offer an oblique documentation of his work, and present a portrait of an artist through an idiosyncratic landscape of objects, as much as through the work. The lyrical photographs gesture towards his influence, forming a type of formal and conceptual reverberation across generations.
