Euan Taylor @ ROXY Art House

Article by Rosamund West | 24 Mar 2010

Last year The Skinny selected our favourite artist from the New Contemporaries exhibition and gave him a prize. It was a tough selection in a strong field, but we finally, after much deliberation, chose Euan Taylor. We were particularly struck by his Cloud Muncher (giant orange crane displaying the warning “Inefficient Solutions and the Royal Scottish Academy do not accept any responsibility of damage to persons as a result of playing on, climbing, admiring or walking past this artwork.”), which made us smile, especially when it terrified the visitors as its sirens went off.

The prize included a Showcase spread in the magazine, which happened way back in October and looked very nice. Part two of the prize is an exhibition, organised by our good selves, which coincides rather nicely with the second installment of New Contemporaries. Taking place in the ROXY Art House's theatre space, it forms a mini retrospective of Euan's work including the Cloud Muncher, some work he made with art collaboration enthusiasts GANGHUT and new work in the form of small-scale models. It opens on Thursday 8 April with a big party, starting at 9 in the ROXY bar. It'll be open 8-13 Apr, 12-8pm, and of course the entry is free.
