Platform's artist in residence celebrates making in Easterhouse Visual Arts Artists at work Platform Artists at work
‘Paint it Red’ is a contemporary portrait of Easterhouse by Glasgow-based artist, Colin James Tennant. The exhibition is the culmination of a year-long photography project that has developed through conversations, interactions and experiences gained while working in Easterhouse. The work explores the local landscape; the social history, its personalities and the human spirit that contribute to this notoriously misunderstood community.
Colin, the artist, has a few words to add…
“I’ve spent time over the past year meeting and photographing people in the local community and hearing their stories. It’s been a truly fascinating experience – I’ve met so many inspirational people in what is a thriving, vibrant place.”
