 Alison Kinnaird - Unknown

 

Guild Fellow, Alison Kinnaird MBE FGE

has been invited to show her installation 'Unknown' in St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh from 1st-15th November, marking Remembrance Week 2018.

This artwork is the artist's response to the present state of conflict in so many parts of the world and the fact that we never seem to learn from the experiences of the past. The work was completed over a three year period and is made up of uniquely engraved soldiers arranged in ranks - though they appear uniform, each is an individual.

 War Flowers Touring Art Exhibition

WAR FLOWERS - Touring Art Exhibition
By Raynes Art + Design Ltd 
WAR FLOWERS | FLEUR D’ARMES
Ottawa | Toronto | Vimy | Montreal

“I believe people have an ability to find beauty and hope, even amidst the horrors of war. This exhibition examines human nature in wartime through a series of artistic representations, multisensory experiences and portraits of ten Canadians who were involved in the First World War.

Optical crystal sculptures created by Mark Raynes Roberts portray scenes that illustrate different aspects of human nature while scents developed by Alexandra Bachand evoke personal memory.

WAR Flowers is inspired by the pressed flowers picked by George Stephen Cantlie
in the gardens, fields and hedges of war-torn Europe and sent to his baby daughter
in Montreal. I examine these century-old flowers using floriography, a method of communicating emotion through flowers, to tell the story of human nature in the
landscape of war.”  – Viveka Melki, curator

Next showing:  Château Ramezay, Montréal — 24 October 2018 to 31March 2019

WAR FLOWERS | FLEUR D'ARMES has been made possible by the Government
of Canada and by the generosity of private partners.
