The exhibition Sea and Sky opens this Saturday at 10am. If you’re in or near Edinburgh this weekend, I hope you’ll find time to drop in and say hello.
(I’d love to post updates on all the paintings in progress, but am advised by the gallery to keep them under wraps till the launch!)
In the meantime, you can find more information on the Marchmont Gallery link here – Marchmont Gallery – Sea and Sky
I’ve really enjoyed working with Gallery Manager Karen Bates, an artist herself with a great collaborative and creative approach. The gallery is part-funding a small booklet which features paintings and poetry (written by Jennifer L Williams) and this will be available after the launch.
Composer/Cellist Atzi Muramatsu is also playing live at the gallery, but we have had to limit numbers as space is limited. But I will definitely be recording the performance and posting it here afterwards. I’ll also create another of my short videos combining music, poetry and paintings.
Atzi and Jennifer are on a bit of a high just now as both have had great news; Jennifer’s book Locust and Marlin was nominated for a Saltire Award, and a film short – Monkey Love Experiments for which Atzi composed the music score has just won a Scottish Bafta. Both well deserved!
I’ll also post images of all paintings after the launch, I’m so used to sharing the creative process it feels unusual not to post them here, but it all adds to the mystery, I hope!
