In the first major showing of the artist's work in a public institution in Scotland, the sixth and final exhibition in the NOW series highlights the work of Scottish artist Katie Paterson (b.1981). Born in Glasgow, and a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art and Slade School of Fine Art, London, Paterson is considered one of the leading artists of her generation.
NOW delves into the theme of time. Paterson's work explores deep time, the cosmos, and the place of humans in relation to these phenomena – ideas that have been central to the artist's work for more than a decade. Among the works featured is Paterson's mesmerising installation Totality (2016), a large - scale mirror ball created from almost all known images of solar eclipses captured by humankind, and Light Bulb to Simulate Moonlight (2008), held in National Galleries of Scotland's collection. Also exploring the theme of time as part of NOW are artists Darren Almond, Shona Macnaughton and Lucy Raven.
