Cross Your Eyes and Dot Your T’s

Monday 4th June - Friday 31st August 2018
10am - 5pm Monday - Saturday

‘An exploration and celebration of a different way of brain processing; Dyslexia.’

Cross Your Eyes and Dot Your T’s is an exhibition of new print work by artist Lucy
Grainge, created during a two month residency in Out of the Blue’s riso studio, Out
of the Blueprint, in Spring 2018.

Over the past two months, Lucy has been working in the Out of the Blueprint studio,
adapting her artistic processes, developed at art school, working with the shape of
words and language, and the lived experience of dyslexia.

By building up and overlapping acetate, Lucy creates strong graphic images, which
visually represent dyslexia as a different way of brain processing with a plethora of
both challenges and strengths.

During her time in the studio, Lucy has been developing new work based on both
her own experience of dyslexia and further first hand research with others. The
suite (sweet) of prints, which combine text and image, extend both her own
processes but also adapt them to push the riso printing to all its logical and illogical

The exhibition is a fantastically bold and lively presentation, brimming with
possibilities that comes with thinking differently.

Lucy Grainge is an artist/ designer based in Glasgow. She graduated from The
Glasgow School of Art in 2017, with a BA in Communication Design.

Lucy’s residency has been created as part of a year long programme of print activity
for young people under 25 years old. Over the year of 2018, Out of the Blueprint is
hosting residencies for young artists, co-ordinating exhibitions, and developing and
delivering a programme of workshops, educational projects and monthly print
events for young people aged 10 – 25. This year long programme of activity is
gratefully supported by The National Lottery via Creative Scotland.

The studio’s work providing traineeships and educational work is also gratefully
supported by The Robertson Trust and Young Start.
