    This month we opened a solo show from one of our Team Recoat members, Kirsty Whiten. She has revisited her Schemie Centaurs Imagery to create a new series of drawings, paintings, and paste-ups. “West End Bestiary- Half-human beasts of legend, collected and dissected for your amazement.” Fraser Denholm and Richard Watson (FLUX Video) came and documented the show and interviewed Kirsty about her work. Ben Seal (BenSealMusic.com) got on board and created some quality music for the film too. Thanks to everyone for making such a quality piece. Whiten's work focuses on reconstructing myth and imagining awe-inspiring creatures of old in a modern context; centaurs - half man, half horse, heroic and muscular, caught up in the trenches of WW1, or even the backstreets of Glasgow, where they sport baseball caps, down bottles of beer and flick the V's at us. Kirsty has exhibited all over the world from London to New York and Melbourne. Her last show, Breeder Badlands, was at Stolespace in London and led to a series of lithographs co-published by Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop in 2012. Her warped imagery has been featured in magazines such as Juxtapoz and Hi Fructose and art blogs worldwide. Her massive paste ups were an important part of the Rough Cut Nation installation at the National Portrait Gallery and at their recent Freedom Versions in Stirling. www.kirstywhiten.com/ www.recoatdesign.com Available artwork is here- http://recoat.bigcartel.com/

      A virtual collaboration with web project www.theycallusanimals.com with source material from by Director Catrin Hedström, which has been morphed and mangled by myself. The music is from my 2011 E.P. on Hibernate Recordings, "Triple Triage" which has sold out as a physical object but you can buy the EP online at a bargain price of £2 UK Sterling. Here :- http://chrisdooks.bandcamp.com/album/triple-triage-2011 Actually I do still have a handful of physical copies left with amazing artwork from Kirsty Whiten, so contact me through bandcamp.

        'Impossible Nation' sees the National Galleries of Scotland's Outreach Team join forces with the Travelling Gallery to take a riotous visual collage of twisted national identity on tour around Scotland. The follow up to 2009's Scottish National Portrait Gallery exhibition, 'Rough Cut Nation', this explosion of images reveals a contemporary narrative of the Scottish nation, reconfiguring key figures and events to form an alternative and inclusive re-description of the nation’s story.
