A busy programme of free temporary exhibitions takes place throughout the year at Verdant Works and we’re delighted to host Changing Dundee, a joint exhibition by Dundee printmakers, Marianne Wilson and Maya Abeysuriya. We’ve invited Marianne and Maya to each give an Artist’s Talk, so come along to hear more about how our artists create their work and discover the inspiration behind their remarkable pieces

Marianne Wilson artist-printmaker attended DJCAD, graduating in 2000. Her inspiration is the surrounding landscape, the history and changing geography of an area. Using notions of melancholia and nostalgia she tries to visualise a lost place or period in time. For this exhibition she has built up a personal vision of the area that surrounds the Verdant Works. From its use as a Pleasance during the Scottish Renaissance and plant nurseries in later times, to the industrialisation of linen and jute manufacture, this part of town has had many uses over the centuries. Referencing historical material and her own photographs and drawings Marianne has created dreamlike montages using printmaking and collage.
