Fragments, Fragmentation, & Fractures is an invited group exhibition featuring a range of contemporary painters. Each artist’s distinct style demonstrates the extensive breadth of painting today, spanning from figuration to abstraction through the means of fragments, fragmentation and fractured imagery and colour.
The participating artists have all worked in Glasgow across their career progression, as students, professional practicing artists, and tutors.

About the Artists:

Angus Fernie (b.1996) is a Glasgow based artist having graduated from Painting and Printmaking at the Glasgow School of art in 2018 with the James Nicol McBroom award and has since exhibited across Glasgow and London. Based on the belief that there is a great deal of silliness in our surrounding mundanity, much of Fernie’s work involves somewhat odd and out of context still lifes and figure compositions offering the viewer a sillier, stiller life within the painting.

Flora Lawrence is a painter based between Glasgow and London. She works with large scale abstract oil and varnish on canvas and co-founded Dornoch Street Studios in Bridgeton.

The painting included in The Royal Glasgow Institute is one of a series nine large works she produced throughout the pandemic – all of them using a fixed set of materials, most notably a vibrant orange spray paint.
With many opportunities to exhibit the work cancelled, or postponed, this series of nine developed into an online project. Her paintings appear literally and digitally, in public spaces around Glasgow. Flora curates and pairs her work in outside environments which have an unlikely resonance to her paintings.
Christiana Spens is based in London, living previously in Glasgow and Dundee, and having grown up in Fife. Her work explores sociality, memory, relationships and and nostalgia through figurative painting, drawing and printmaking. She also works as an illustrator and writer, with books forthcoming from Repeater Books in 2022 and 2023.
Richard Walker is a Scottish artist from Cumbernauld, now based near Ballantrae. He has shown widely in the UK and abroad, including solo shows in Glasgow, Edinburgh, New York and London, and been the recipient of a number of awards, including grants from Creative Scotland, The Hope Scott Trust and the Pollock Krasner Award. He has taken part in residencies at the Albers Foundation in Connecticut, Haining House in Selkirk (RSA)and in Berwick upon Tweed.
He worked for many years as a scene painter for Scottish Opera, and up until recently was a Lecturer in the painting department at Glasgow School of Art.
