BORROWED LIGHT Sheenagh McKinlay - Paul Shaw


Stour Space celebrates Sheenagh McKinlay and Paul Shaw in BORROWED LIGHT April 5th-29th 2013 (Private View April 4th 6-9pm) | 9am - 5pm daily | Free Admission A glowing moment in the Hackney vista. Glass artist Sheenagh McKinlay and Paul Shaw take pieces of disused broken stained glass and rework them into crystal coloured narratives. This collection sees locally-based stained glass designers host their first joint show, which approaches the medium of traditionally made leaded glass from two very different perspectives. On display from Sheenagh McKinlay are two series of work, ‘Albion’ and ‘The Greeks’. Inspired by the great myth cycles of the Mabinogian and King Arthur, the Iliad and the Odyssey. The panels are barely planned, usually a single painted fragment is chosen as the starting point. The final image develops from the relationships this and further scraps and shards make when brought together and reconfigured on light boxes. Stained glass expresses itself in its surroundings. A church in a field of copper light flooding through, takes a different narrative to a pool of colour from the light above the corrugated tin shells of Hackney Wick. Two strands of recent work by Paul Shaw are represented here in the show. A group of abstract images created by collage, using heavily textured re-used glass, found in Scandinavia, make up the collection. Paul’s most recent work has explored themes contained in the domestic stained glass of the 1920s and 1930s- interpreting the archetypes of art deco utilising archaic household items. This exhibition evokes a memory, a myth, or an emotion that can never be pinned down. To the nonobsessed, this might not seem obvious at all. Viewers interpret this as you will. ABOUT THE ARTISTS Sheenagh McKinlay has been involved in creative development and community projects at the Bromley by Bow Centre since the 1980s, combining this with commissions, exhibitions and teaching stained glass and mosaic. Her commissions range from large public art and church commissions to small domestic pieces, using antique and contemporary glass.

Working from a studio in Bromley by Bow he concentrates mostly on commissions for domestic contexts. Studio work often incorporates re-used textured glass and found glass objects.
