'Shared Vision' - A solo show of ink paintings, prints and drawings by Kate Downie.

20 Sep ‘15


9.00AM - 5.00PM

Venue: Pathfoot Building, University of Stirling.

It is exactly 5 years since the artist Kate Downie set foot in China for the first time, as recipient of a William Gilles Scholarship award from the Royal Scottish Academy.  She has since returned there three times and to mark her continuing relationship with that country she presents her forthcoming solo exhibition ‘Shared Vision’ which opens in the Pathfoot Building of Stirling University on the 20th September and continues until December 2015.  

This exhibition brings together a body of work relating to cultural absolutes in China and examines the role of ink painting in defining or mythologizing that culture in the 21st century and its influences in the West.

It will be presented as part of  ‘Reflections of the East’ at Stirling University and is a part of a programme of events, exhibitions, workshops and lectures about our creative relationship with China.

On September 21st the artist returns to Beijing for further research but will return in time to present an Ink Painting Event & workshop with artist Chi Zhang as well as the Autumn Lecture at Stirling University Arts Faculty on November 11th.

As a part of the Reflections of the East programme of events at Stirling University, Artist Kate Downie will be presenting the Autumn Lecture: Autumn Art lecture: ‘Future-proof’ - A European gaze at new traditions & past inventions in China.
