Missum at Ink_D Gallery

Here is one to mark in your diaries for later this year. Missum is one half of the artist collective Miss Bugs. This unique artistic partnership, founded in 2007, has produced a body of work that has achieved international acclaim and developed a passionate home-grown following.

In early 2011, Missum began to explore her own individual aesthetic. Departing from the kinetic, graphically led collage style that had become synonymous with the work of Miss Bugs, Missum’s focus addresses a more traditional method of printing.

This new appraoch, which incorporates the use of watercolours, collograph and dry-point etching, has given the artist’s work a darker edge that yet imparts a more femine, softer tone. In these pieces, the artist can be seen to be developing her mark-making, whilst also addressing new themes and pre-occupations. The work resonates feelings of isolation and loss whilst the delicately dark, somber palette draws the viewer in to an unforgiving and often unsettling landscape.

‘PLACE – WORKS ON PAPER’ opens on the 21st October and will run until the 21st November 2011. A private view will be held on Thursday 20th October, 6 – 8.30PM.
