Missing showcases the work of emerging contemporary artists Celia Garcia and Claire Forsyth from Glasgow working in lens-based media. Scotland and photography as a medium has a long history back to its early advances and invention. Missing demonstrates the continuation of this relationship in the modern day through lustrous colour imagery creating worlds for the viewer to enter, as always, giving the illusion of reality.
Both artists are fine art graduates of Glasgow School of Art and are based primarily in Glasgow though sometimes work for periods in London and Berlin.
Working with both traditional photographic film and digital imaging, Celia Garcia seeks out beacons of light in the modern urban city. Like a moth to the flame, the work presents both abstract forms and atmospheric landscapes, all contemplating the way we illuminate the night.
Using photography and printmaking, Claire Forsyth captures forgotten or unnoticed places. Devoid of people, the viewer becomes voyeur to an altered landscape, removed from prosaic context. The images document pockets of space in an unnatural state.
