This afternoon Joe delivered his work for the new exhibition which opens on Sunday the 7th of September. One of the nicest parts of our job is seeing new work when it comes into the Gallery and Jill and I are really excited about the calibre of work for the upcoming show. Joe's use of colour and light is remarkable. Urban scenes: Chicago, London, Berlin and Joe's home turf of Dundee depict cafes, shop windows and streets. Sometimes the streets are deserted and the sunlight and shadows set the mood but in Joe's figurative work keen observation of people and their exchanges transport you to the moment.
Joe also brought Barbara Robertson's lino cuts...I can't wait to unwrap them tomorrow.
