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 is an established artist based in Glasgow since 1996, who’s work sits between abstract and representational.
Hugh Anderson was an architect until his retirement, but with an eye to what was both brutal and beautiful in Glasgow and further afield.
For each of them mankind’s effect on the landscape has been a constant fascination.
