Happening 4th Nov 2016 until 1st Oct 2017 in Dundee

About Out of the Frame: Scottish Abstraction

From early protagonist William Gear, to contemporary painter Callum Innes, Scots continue to find new ways to engage with the seemingly endless possibilities of abstraction. ‘Out of the Frame’ examines how Scottish artists have experimented and engaged with abstract art. Turning their backs on realistic representation, they focus instead on colour, shape, form and gestural marks. Whilst some use these to express thoughts and emotions, others let them stand-alone, creating art based purely on visual effect. ‘Out of the Frame’ includes the City’s latest fine art acquisition in the shape of three abstract works by Victoria Morton, as well as stunning artworks by Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and Calum Innes. Dundee’s entire fine and applied art and whaling collections are recognised as being of national significance. The Collection is owned by Dundee City Council and administered on their behalf by Leisure and Culture Dundee. The Recognition Scheme is administered by Museums Galleries Scotland.
