Painted in 1656 by Diego Velázquez, Las Meninas is one of the most revered and innovative artworks in history. Widely discussed, debated and critiqued, it has inspired artists, writers and filmmakers for centuries.

Just when you thought there was nothing more left to say about the painting, artist, curator and lecturer Andrew Bracey asked sixty-two contemporary artists to interpret the artwork. Well, almost. The painting itself never leaves the world-famous Museo del Prado in Madrid, so he distributed a postcard of Las Meninas to respond to in place of Velázquez’s original.

Bracey’s perceptive and engaging writing brings Las Meninas to life in new ways through the interpretation of these contemporary artworks, which range from the witty and the cosmic through to the conceptual and intuitive.

Exploring themes including ‘close looking’, time, mirroring, the meta and the complex, and associative thinking, this book demonstrates how an artist’s interpretation of an artwork can offer a host of new perspectives.

Enough Is Definitely Enough introduces the relative art novice to the links between contemporary art practice and art history, while allowing the expert to find alternative ways of looking at one of the world’s greatest paintings.

Andrew Kerr. Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

In 1999, Inverleith House presented an exhibition open to all artists living and working in Scotland, called ‘Absolut Open’. The 29 artists chosen to exhibit were selected from submissions by over 350 artists, spanning several generations and encompassing every artistic medium and style. A few of the artists represented were already well-known at the time, but most were not. One of the strangest and most scuccessfuil works in the exhibition was a cardbopard sculpture made by Andrew Kerr, a young artist who had only just graduated from Glasgow School of Art. It took the form of a ‘cast.’ taken from another sculpture – the Garden’s ‘Slate Cone’ (Andy Goldsworthy, 1990; resting on the gallery floor like an upturned carapace it was positioned so that both could be viewed simultaneously by looking out of a window towards the hawthorn tree near which Goldsworthy’s sculpture was sited.

whilst Kerr’s sculpture appeared temporary, inmprovised and possibly even slightly irreverent, both forms demonstated an affinity with nature and culture respectively. Born in 1977, Kerr is one of the younger members of an internationally recognised generation of artists who have made exhibitions for Inverleith House in recent years, including Karla Black, Douglas Gordon, Jim Lambie, Victoria Morton, Tony Swain, Hayley and Sue tompkins and Cathy Wilkes.

The exhibition will feature new and recent work and is Kerr’s first major museum exhibition in Scotland, following a major solo exhjibition in 2009 at the Kunstverein in Bremerhaven, Germany and other recent solo exhibitions in Cologne and Glasgow.
