Annie Mulvey: Softer

15 February - 3 March 2020

Annie Mulvey graduated from Gray’s School of Art in 2017.


Her groundwork stems from our cultural obsession with keeping, including aspects of; conservation, preservation, tradition, and celebration of heritage along with the fragility of materiality through the effects of passing time, and neighbouring environments. Often her work references moments of natural destruction and decomposition from that of humans and organic matter and our protective processes to halt it.

Annie’s practice works between painting, drawing and installation pieces, usually creating her own structures to work on. Through her use of texture, structure and shape, the work strives to bring together the factual and the fantastical to question this relationship we seemingly have with the kept and ‘historical’.

Since graduating she has been awarded the Visual Arts Scotland New Graduate Award, the George Davidson Trust Art Scholarship and the &Gallery Exhibition Prize.


The development of this body of work has been supported by the South of Scotland Visual Artist and Craft Maker Awards funded by Creative Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway Council and Live Borders.
