Toby Paterson



Penumbralism finds its impetus in the many ‘grey areas’ of townscape that continue to define the visual and spatial experience of the city of Glasgow. Whilst apparently neatly resolved districts and keynote buildings are held to convey the image of the city, this project looks at the obverse; locations that represent the unresolved, the overlooked or the simply discarded.

Toby Paterson is an artist with a long held interest in teasing out subjective perspectives of cities, not least with regard to his native Glasgow with this project being developed in collaboration with Agile City specifically for newly established venue Civic House.
