BROTH art is delighted to launch an exhibition at L’Entrepot showcasing multi-award winning work by artist Patricia Cain.
Cain spent 4 years on site at the Zaha Hadid-designed Riverside Museum in Glasgow while it was under construction. Working in pastel from sketches made during these visits, she deftly captured the skeletal structure of this celebrated example of modern architecture. The resultant series of work attracted awards including the Threadneedle Prize (2010) and the Aspect Prize (2010) and paved the way for further accolades, such as the RWS award (2014) and the Arte Laguna Prize in Venice (2014).
The recently late Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid is well known for her groundbreaking designs, which seem to defy gravity and upturn basic principals of engineering with their gigantic swoops and curves. Her design for Riverside Museum, which the Guardian described as one of her ‘most direct’ is no exception. Featuring a roofline designed ‘as if squeezed from a gothic tube of toothpaste’, the building has a seamless fluidity, which betrays nothing of its construction. Cain’s work exposes the complex process of creating the apparently effortless folds of the museum’s striking , zinc panel-clad roof.
