T. D. Coats: 'Reflection, Deflection, Detourment'


by Rita McGurn

Until 3 March 2018

About the artist:

T.D. Coats is based in Glasgow, ‘though he thinks in Leadhills. 

A Glasgow School of Art Graduate, education has been a consistent feature in his life, taking on various apprentices and collaborators, and tutoring part time at various institutions. 

He is of eternal optimism that things will get better. 

Many years have been spent demonstrating and remonstrating about how the arts should talk less and do more. 

Observation is his bag, comment is often reserved. 

‘Reserved’ in the sense of ‘being kept back’, rather than ‘being shy and quiet’, 

What you see is what you get.
