‘Aimee In Galashiels’ – Mikey Cuddihy

1 July 1995 — 27 August 1995

Doodles made while talking on the telephone are the starting point for Mikey Cuddihy’s new abstract paintings. Acknowledging the friend on the other end of the line in the title of each work, these are portraits ‘ in absentia’. Lacking any object, we find ourselves gazing directly at the subject, at Cuddihy herself.
