Outer Spaces

05 Jul 2017 - 29 Jul 2017

The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present Amanda Simmons’s first solo exhibition. Outer Spaces is the culmination of a two-week residency at Lyth Arts Centre in Caithness and the continuing research of the Flow Country and its massive capacity to store carbon in the many layers of peat. Working from watercolour prints inspired by the patterns and colours of the land and sky, Amanda has made some of her largest gravity formed glassworks to date for this exhibition.

Originally trained in Biomedical Sciences (Pharmacology) and Clinical Sciences, Amanda became interested in glass in 2002 after a stained glass course with Ray Bradley and then pursued a postgraduate in Glass and Architecture from Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London, in 2004. Amanda currently works from her studio in Dumfries and Galloway.
