In Glaring Shade, Gribbon inserts Scott into various scenes through the matrix of the queer woman artist in the 21st century.
The series of 12 monotype prints draw attention to the act of seeing, not just for the artist and viewer, but also for the subject. The variations of print motifs each draw attention to Scott’s eyes, created by unique manipulations of a printing plate and inks. In one scenario, Scott blocks a spotlight light with her hand, a nod to her performance background. In another, she protects herself with an eyepatch, surrounded by an imagined greenscape inspired by art historical scenes. This playful approach to printmaking allows the viewer to empathise with Scott’s experience of seeing, whilst simultaneously questioning what it is to be seen.
