Currently garnering acclaim for her touring site-specific installation Lands End, Claxton brings her second solo show to Edinburgh’s Ingleby Gallery. Postcards explores the real and implied relationships between figures within pictures and between the subject and the viewer by manipulating reproductions of historical portraits with a scalpel to create entirely new artworks comprised of intricate patterns.

Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh, until Wed 19 Nov.
