Marginal – An Exhibition by Ian Rawlinson

Monday September 6, 2021Friday October 1, 2021

Open Monday – Friday  08.00 – 16.00,  Saturday-  09.00 – 16.00

Marginal is the seventh in a series of solo exhibitions inspired by Rawlinson’s home town of Cambridge where he revisits places which no longer exist or have been subject to significant change since he lived in the city.

His personal history is an influence on the work and the search to find images which define the confluence of past and the present form part of his ongoing investigation into ideas of place and memory. In this series of work Rawlinson uses adjusted and abstracted photographs together with encroaching black forms, scratches and collage suggesting ideas of fragmentation and loss. The work is shown alongside text from Real Cambridge, a new book by Grahame Davies. Grahame accompanied Ian on a walk around the Arbury and King’s Hedges area of Cambridge to discover hidden features and places from the past. This walk informs a chapter in the book.

Born in Cambridge, Ian Rawlinson grew up in the city during the 1960s and 1970s. He studied art at Cambridge College of Art & Technology (now Anglia Ruskin University) and left Cambridge in 1982 to further his studies at Winchester School of Art and the Royal College of Art.

Grahame Davies is a poet, author and lyricist. Born in Coedpoeth, near Wrexham he has an English degree from Cambridge College of Art and Technology (now Anglia Ruskin University) and a PhD from Cardiff University.
