Quietly Dispelling the Dark

Mary McIntyre (Artist)

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


This photograph depicts a secluded space. The directional light which emanates from outside the room in the photograph, only partially illuminates it. The viewer is therefore positioned in a darkened space, looking outwards towards the light. What lies beyond the room remains perpetually concealed within the space of the image. This pictorial concealment resonates with the contradictory elements of my practice as it relates to the environments I create. Everything is on show, but nothing is revealed.

'Entering that Other Scene that Grows out of the Roots of this One’ formed part of the solo exhibition, 'Places We think We Know', at Dundee Contemporary Arts in 2021.
