Marks, management and the effects of time -  40 years of looking at the world around us

People have affected the world since the beginning of time, creating an uneasy relationship between human beings and their environment. In addition to those tracks that made marks across the landscape in prehistoric times, there has been the positive organisation by people of land and space. This has led to the organisation of buildings and cities as well as the development of an aesthetic based on an appreciation of order – except when it deliberately reacts against this.

 

This exhibition is two persons’ response to this interplay between the natural and the manmade world, seen through the prism of over 40 years of observing and positively manipulating the world about them.

Jonathan Meuli

Jonathan Meuli is an established artist based in Glasgow since 1996, who’s  work sits between abstract and representational.

"The landscape moves us in different ways. I learned to paint in Cornwall, standing in a field near St Just-in-Penwith watching birds flocking and blown by the wind. This was beautiful and exciting: subsequently, living in urban and often degraded environments I have tried to incorporate into my art works the power and complexity of man-made city-and-road-scapes in a way which recognises their austere beauty, acknowledges the destruction it involves, and conveys the visual reality of where we live - piecing together the ugliness and the beauty with some hope for the future."

Hugh Anderson was born in South Africa but has lived the past 36 years in Glasgow practicing as an architect. During this time he has always painted, but done so seriously only since his retirement in 2019, an event which he marked with a six month painting “sabbatical” back in South Africa.

His interest in the effects of man on the environment stems not surprisingly from his time as an architect, which he describes as “symbiotic”, ‘enhancing’ but equally ‘predative’.
