Claire Barclay is one of Scotland’s internationally acclaimed artists. In her first solo show in Edinburgh, Barclay presents new work at doggerfisher in an exhibition entitled Some reddish work done at night. This is doggerfisher’s seventh exhibition since opening in May 2001.
In Some reddish work done at night, Barclay creates through drawings and sculptural works, a series of physical tensions and intriguing juxtapositions. Barclay has long been interested in how seemingly disparate natural and man-made materials and objects create an uneasiness or even a tension when placed in close proximity.
