Today’s paintings of Harris for upcoming exhibiton at the Whitespace Gallery from 14th to 20th July.
There will also be a preview event on Friday 14th July with a live cello performance by Atzi Muramatsu in reponse to the themes and paintings of the exhibition. If you’ve followed this blog for a while you’ll know that Atzi is a friend and collaborator I’ve worked with since about 2013.
In 2016 he won the Best Composer Award at the BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards for his work on a short film ‘The Violinist’.
Below are a few short video examples of work we’ve done together, including – Sea, space and sky a short video created last year following a trip to the west coast of Scotland – Achiltibuie then Lewis and Harris in the Hebrides. The film features a poem by Lewis-based poet Ian Stephen (read by Ian Stephen), and several new poems written by another friend and collaborator, Louise Palfreyman. Also below, from an earlier collaboraton on the Isle of Eigg, a performance of Atzi’s work in progress for string quartet; Gaea Metempsychosis
This is all stunning all of it

Thank you so much Jenny! Hope you can join us for a glass of wine at the exhibition preview if you are in Edinburgh. All details on ‘News and Projects’ in menu at top of this page.
I wish I could but I live in New Zealand.. my back ground is Scottish though.. my surname is Dalziel.. I have some friends who live in inner leithen near Peebles maybe they could go in my place?? not sure how far that is from Edinburgh.
Lucky you living in New Zealand! My niece just returned from living there for a year and misses it quite a lot (especially weather!). Peebles is a 30 mile drive or bus journey from Edinburgh, hopefully worth the trip 🙂 I adore Peebles and the lush country thereabouts, actually I did a series on the Scottish Borders a couple of years back (viewable on Gallery’ above. I’ll be sure to post pics of the Isle of Harris exhibition here, and a vid of the cello performance, so you won’t miss out! Thanks again and best wishes, Rose
