not from concentrate

Solo Exhibition of newly commissioned work

Glasgow Sculpture Studios Off-site
At Unit 13 Eastvale Place Glasgow G3

30 October – 20 November 2010

Gallery open 12 noon - 5pm Thursday – Saturday, or by appointment


Glasgow Sculpture Studios is proud to present Risa Tsunegi’s first solo exhibition of new work titled not from concentrate marking the end of her one-year Fellowship.

Tsunegi was awarded The Glasgow Sculpture Studios Gordon Foundation Graduate Fellowship in June 2009. Since last November, she has been based in studio 8, working alongside professional artists towards a number of exhibitions including abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxy, at Glasgow’s newest space, David Dale Gallery and Nomi’s Kitchen during the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art.

Presented in an off-site space not from concentrate presents work that pursues newly formed sculptural interests.

Tsunegi is interested in the relationship between force and form and their subject to gravity. Her work is heavily influenced by architecture and the function and possibilities of the materials used in architectural structures.

The exhibition is accompanied by a commissioned text by Glasgow based writer Talitha Kotze.

The exhibition is supported by The Arts Trust & The Hope Scott Trust. The exhibition preview is supported by Glenfiddich.

The 2009 selection panel for the award comprised of Kitty Anderson, Communications Manager, The Common Guild; Michael Stumpf, Artist, Amy Sales, Programme Development Manager, Glasgow Sculpture Studios; Alexandra P. Spaulding, Artist, GSS Artist Member & Studio Holder, Eddie Stewart, Artist, GSS Artist Member & Studio Holder; Douglas Morland, Artist, GSS Artist Member & Studio Holder, Co-Director of Washington Garcia; and Lorraine Wilson, Curator, Tramway.

Since June 2005, selection panels made up of a diverse range of arts professionals have selected one graduate from The Glasgow School of Art’s Master of Fine Art Programme to be awarded the Glasgow Sculpture Studios Graduate Fellowship.

Each year GSS offers the recipient annual Artist Membership, private studio accommodation, access to professional opportunities and specialist communal production facilities, training and curatorial, technical and administrative support. In addition to the above, funding is secured towards realising a solo project, as part of the GSS Public programme.

Past MFA recipients have included Laura Aldridge (2007), Carla Scott Fullerton (2009) and Jonathan Scott (2005).
