An exhibition of large scale (3ft x 2ft) screen prints, lithographs and etchings in addition to four limited edition bound artist books, plus two unbound editions by four renowned international artists, Ian Howard, Arthur Watson, Sotaro Idea and Hisashi Kurachi
Scottish artists Ian Howard and Arthur Watson create pieces of mystery inspired by their individual interests in the Devil and his place in regional folklore. The artists found a corresponding interest in the works of Japanese printmakers Sotaro Ide and Hisashi Kurachi. Double Diablerie connects Celtic Scotland and Nippon (ancient Japan) by examining the two culture’s relationships with the devil through geography, including mountains named for the Devil, groves of trees with spiritual significance, incantations, scapegoat rituals and ghostly manifestations. This show melds two isolated landscapes, Japan and Scotland into one space.
