We are all so excited about presenting Mina Braun's first solo exhibition Time to Wonder here at The Red Door Gallery!  The exhibition (which is currently at our expert framer's) will be a collection of screen prints hand pulled at Edinburgh Printmaker's Workshop and there are enthusiastic whispers spreading through the city about her brand new pieces!

Mina's artwork is motivated by visual storytelling.  Her prints often seem to capture a moment taken from motion and involve characters and themes inspired by the transitional realm of folk and fairy tales.  Reflecting on the notion of entering a different world, her characters appear to be in a dream-like state: sleeping, flying with closed eyes, or transforming into animals or trees.

Mina was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany but studied Illustration in Edinburgh College of Art, receiving a 1st class undergraduate and going on to complete her Masters in 2006.  Mina's pholio of works include album cover designs for James Yorkston, Chris Dooks and Orkestra Del Sol.  You May also have seen her work in publications for Owl & Lion, Edinburgh Book Festival and The Local's Guide to Edinburgh (£10 through The Red Door Gallery)

Her exhibition runs from June 30th to July 28th.  If you would like to pop in between 6.30 and 9.30 pm on Thursday June 30th Mina will be here with us all to meet you and celebrate the exhibition opening.
