Michael Agnew’s eclectic practices includes painting, collage, printmaking, collaborative publishing and drawing. He is first and foremost an image maker and his work mines ideas surrounding his and the collective memory and identity. Celebrating the contemporary craft of the artefact but always mindful of the Scottish emblematic tradition, ‘Caledonian Antisyzygy’ and the polar extremes of meaning percolates his output. Hidden messages to be deciphered, untangled and quizzed by audience.
He is currently the Course Leader in Painting at Gray’s School of Art and during this visit to his Aberdeen studio we will hear about his practice, motivation, thematic, narrative, teaching and the inspiration underpinning his life and work.
