New edit of Irish work now online

I’ve just uploaded a new edit of my Irish landscape work, titled “Tracking.” A few new photos are included.

View the project here: https://www.alexandrahuddleston.com/tracking-1

 Description: In these photographs, a distinctive way of seeing, developed as a consequence of extensive walking off-trail through bog and over hill, has transformed my representation of the Irish landscape. Tracking off-trail, without the guidance of clear paths and signposts, what I noticed and valued began to change. Things that used to hold little meaning, started to become signs and symbols….

Glasgow: "Relay 1," opening Wednesday the 3rd of July

I will have work in a group show in Glasgow: "Relay 1," opening Wednesday the 3rd of July, in the Tramway Upper Gallery, 25 Albert Dr, Glasgow G41 2PE

Press Release:

“Relay” presents three consecutive group shows featuring a diverse group of graduate artists from the

Glasgow School of Art. Re-examining the group show dynamic, each group of artists have the

opportunity to ‘relay’ ideas between each other and then pass the baton to the next. Over the course

of three weeks, each show presents new configurations of artists from the cohort, sparking new

conversations between the works.

Art school end of year shows can present an excess of work from many months or years of study: the

result can be overwhelming for both artist and viewer. Afterwards, the artist may find their way of

working and access to resources has changed. Relay gives the artists space to run with their ideas.

Ten months after graduating, forty-three artists from the MLitt Fine Art programme return to participate

in Relay , a self-organised show at Glasgow’s Tramway. Each show presents artists from various

disciplines presenting new ways of working and developments in their practice. In this way, the public

can see the Relay between art school to the cultural life of Glasgow and beyond.

More details:

Relay will take place in the Tramway Upper Gallery, 25 Albert Dr, Glasgow G41 2PE.

Open weekly from Thursday - Friday 10am - 5pm, and Saturday - Sunday 10am - 6pm

An art relay race during the month of July at Tramway, Glasgow, taking place over three weeks.

Relay 1 opens on Wednesday 3 rd July; Relay 2 on Wednesday 10 th ; Relay 3 Wednesday 17 th July.

In late 2017, 14 artists embarked on a residency experience for 8 days in the centre of the Cairngorm National Park, Braemar, Scotland. During this residency, the artists undertook walks, workshops, screenings, discussions and group crits, taking time to connect with nature and explore, experiment, converse and exchange and develop ideas. This exhibition reunites 12 of these International-based artists once more:

“Opened. Matter.” - September 2018, Glasgow School of Art postgraduate Degree Show, Scotland

“Opened. Matter.” is an exhibition centered around three photographic installations, Chrysalis, A Sea Change, and Cernunnos. Each piece depicts moments when the boundaries among spaces, times, and materialities are porous and adulterated. Fragility and metamorphosis are central concepts behind the work’s content and its material structure…

“Into the Woods” : Glasgow, Tuesday, June 12th

“Into the Woods” brings together Stuckemeier’s painting installation “What is the Taste of Magenta?” (2018) and three of Huddleston’s large-scale, archival photographs from the series “Canto 1: The Dark Forest” (2018).

The works of these two artists play with interiority and exteriority. Huddleston’s photographs take the viewer, quite literally “into the woods,” leaving them in a dark interior, one created by the natural world.  Stuckemeier’s free-hanging installation creates an interior space that surrounds the visitor with the sensual experience of magenta, a color that represents the link between heaven and earth.

The spaces created by both of these artists are a locus of transformation, a meeting place between worlds.  Although Stuckemeier’s and Huddleston’s practice span very different media, the resulting works share a clarity and visual simplicity.  Together they leave the viewer on the threshold.

Canto I: The Dark Forest – Now Online

Canto 1: The Dark Forest

The three photographs in the series “Canto I: The Dark Forest” were made in Northern New Mexico, USA, in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.  They take the viewer into the woods, leaving them in a dark interior, one created by the natural world.  It is a space of transformation, a meeting place between worlds.  Clear, visually simple, these photographs leave the viewer on the threshold…
