Hayley Tompkins

'Hayley Tompkins'

21 Woodlands Terrace, Glasgow G3 6DF

21 June – 2 August 2014

For GENERATION, The Common Guild presented consecutive solo exhibitions by Hayley Tompkins, Corin Sworn and Duncan Campbell. These were the three artists presented by The Common Guild for the exhibition Scotland + Venice 2013, a Collateral Event of the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia.

Hayley Tompkins makes painted objects that transform familiar, commonplace things – such as knives, hammers, mobile phones or furniture. Her work articulates the relationship between the form, feel and function of an object.

Tompkins’ ‘Digital Light Pools’ are comprised of ready-made plastic trays, water bottles and boxed photographic prints which are full of painterly plays on colour, tone, texture and composition.
