Cut Through

by Graham Lister

On display 2 Mar - 13 Apr 2024

Everyone has a ‘cut through’; a quicker route, an easier path, or a shorter way to get to where they want to go.

Cut Through is an exhibition developed for Beacon Arts Centre, by Glasgow-based artist Graham Lister.

The abstract paintings shown within this exhibition foreground engagement with the painted surface; with different ‘versions’ of works being made, a focus on brushwork, grids and diagrammatic painted lines offering moments of recognition. The repeated gestures and patterns within the works allow for link-ups, for visual short cuts between them to be made by viewers.

Shining a light on art at the Beacon

At Beacon Arts Centre we host a constantly changing programme of inspiring and thought-provoking exhibitions in our light and airy upstairs gallery space. Guest Curator Fraser Taylor presents a year-round programme by local, national and international artists – some exclusive to the Beacon.

Fraser studied at Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art. His internationally exhibited work includes large-scale sculptural installations, set design, print media, filmmaking and painting. From 2001 to 2017 he was a Visiting Artist and Adjunct Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and in 2017 was awarded an Honorary Professorship from Glasgow School of Art.
