About Don’t Cover Up Your Scars - An Exhibition of Prints

“The view to the east, behind you as you toil uphill, gets bigger and bigger… You realize that no matter how much terrain you cover there’s always far more than you ever will. Mountaineering is always spoken of as though summitting is conquest, but as you get higher, the world gets bigger, and you feel smaller in proportion to it, liberated by how much open space is around you, how much room to wander, how much unknown”
Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide To Getting Lost

The exhibition is a solo debut from an anonymous artist. The title of the exhibition, Don’t Cover Up Your Scars, comes from lyrics to a song called Scars (from the Before The Calm album) by the band Witness. The song is fragile, quiet and tender until near the end when it becomes intense. It is an album that the artist has grown to love despite (or because of) its understated nature -even if at first listen it didn’t create much impact. What have we to be scared of? Why not accept who we are? The artist has a scar from their childhood and another from a recent hospital operation.

Prints shown in this display include drypoints and screen prints. Drypoint allows the artist to work with accuracy in a detail otherwise thought of as unachievable. The artwork have been praised as being like faded old postcards.

Influences are diverse, and include literature, landscapes, architecture, films and music. The artist has a keen interest in nature and wildlife and in freedom and equality. These themes will come through in the prints shown here. Ideas for work can come at any time, and the artist tries to be receptive to this belief -it doesn’t matter whether you are on the bus home at the end of the day, or washing dishes in the kitchen. Remaining open minded is seen as important.

Works by the artist are due to be displayed at the Scottish Parliament this year as part of the World War 100 commemorations, and are held in private collections internationally.

The opening will take place on Friday the 31st of May at 7pm. The exhibition will last untill Sunday the 2nd of June and will be available to view between 11 am and 5pm.

The artist respectfully asks to remain anonymous.

The artist would like to thank the staff where they study and the people they volunteer with, as well as everyone at M Gallery for assisting with this exhibition.

Special thanks go to Katarina Blicharova.
