Carole Gibbons - An Exhibition at the Third Eye Centre

Tue 30 September — Sat 18 October 1975

Carole Gibbons

An exhibition of the work of Scottish painter Carole Gibbons (b.1935), Gibbons studied at Glasgow School of Art graduating in 1961, based in Glasgow for much of the subsequent years she worked with the Glasgow Group and was involved in starting the New Charing Cross Gallery. She eventually moved to Spain in 1965 where she lived until 1967, with her first solo show at Traverse Gallery Edinburgh consisting of the work she had produced over these years.

The Third Eye Centre exhibition consisted of work made following 1973, still-lifes, self consciously naive portraiture, and mythical landscapes characterise her work at this time and it was highly praised for it's sensitivity and strength. Noting the way she conveyed the presence objects within her still lives whilst simultaneously exploring the material qualities of the paint. Sheila Ross' writing on the show concludes that "these paintings represent an important step forward in the progress of an artist of great eloquence and uniquely personal vision."
