I curated this exhibition for the Smart Gallery in Aberdeen in 2013. The concept for this exhibition came out of an interest in how artists develop ideas and images. This exhibition aimed to examine the work in progress of 4 artists and open up a dialogue about the possible outcomes that could develop one way or another. The artists were invited to question the extent of their research and visual development and how this acted as a catalyst for completed works. To the artists the journey of thinking and making often serve’s to bring the idea on to the next stage leading to a stabilization or final outcome. The stages in between are rarely presented as works in themselves because the idea shifts or the idea is completely abandoned.
