This exhibition features work by nine contemporary artists based in Scotland - Sara Brennan, Michael Craik, Eric Cruikshank, Kenneth Dingwall, Callum Innes, Alan Johnston, James Lumsden, Karlyn Sutherland and Andrea Walsh.
Each of them articulates a minimalist aesthetic through abstraction in their work, ranging from constructions, drawings and paintings to ceramics, glass and tapestry. Eschewing narrative and observed reality, the artworks have an economy of gesture in common - a limited tonal palette or a monochrome colour plane.
