In her first solo show here at Resipole Gallery, Kirstie Cohen brings her striking paintings to our main exhibition space. The show is titled North Atlantic Light, and shows over twenty oil paintings in Kirstie's distinct style - with strong lights and darks, evocative of the tumultuous skies and weather so typical to the West Highlands.
In our white gallery we welcome two scottish artists whom both work from the landscape - anna king's work explores the margins of landscape, inspired by the periferies and edges, deserted buildings and empty spaces, working with oil paint and pencil anna's work is simply stunning. Ellis o'connor is a young visual artist who works with drawing, painting, printmaking and photography to depict the relationship between human activity and environmental change - often working on large scales and building up layers of paint or ink which mimic geomorphic layers, ellis wishes to confront viewers with sublime imagery that may evoke a change in awareness or sense of individual responsibility for environmental issues.
A lovely exhibition of gallery artists along with new artist fiona macrae in our red gallery.
