Given that the work of Rosalind Lawless is inspired by a sense of place, the artist was the ideal recipient of the Inverarity One to One Travel Award at the RGI’s 2009 Open Annual Exhibition.
As part of her prize, Rosalind spent three weeks in the Champagne region of France, as well as spending time in Paris. Visitors to her new solo show at the RGI Kelly Gallery, now have the opportunity to view the work that reflects her time in France.
Rosalind who studied printmaking at Grays School of Art, Aberdeen and London’s Royal College of Art says that while being in different cities always informs her work, arranging to spend time in other places can difficult.
“My subject matter always stems from where I am at, be it the buildings outside my studio or the Riverside in Glasgow, which is why the prize provides the perfect opportunity to spend time in a different environment. I had the luxury of being able to wander about drawing all day, filling sketchbook after sketchbook.”
