Exhibition: Become as we are… Die into us – Duncan MacGillivray

Location: Glasgow Print Studio, Glasgow

Date: 2nd June – 2nd July 2017

Details: With this new selection of digital artwork prints, Duncan MacGillivray returns to a childhood fascination with all things sci-fi and horror, creating a black microcosmos of neon toy ghosts. Each image has been laser cut so that the series suggests a first issue
set of black postage stamps.

“I had been looking at the French stereo card Diableries of the 1860s and also collecting 1940s/50s ‘pulp’ sci-fi and fantasy magazine artwork. A lifelong admiration of printmakers Piranesi and M.C. Escher helped to inspire the work, as did childhood memories of enjoying ‘glow in the dark’ model kits!”
