Glasgow's Turner connection

This week, the work of all four shortlisted artists goes on show at the Baltic, Gateshead – and two are Glaswegian: Martin Boyce (EA), whose sculptures do fearful things with modernist interior design; and Karla Black (S), who uses lipstick, pastel-coloured candles, eyeshadow and sugar paper as her materials. Artists based or born in the city who have been shortlisted in the recent past include Jim Lambie (EA), Christine Borland (SEA), Cathy Wilkes(S), Lucy Skaer (EA) and Nathan Coley(EA). There have been two further winners in Douglas Gordon (EA) and Simon Starling. Guardian
