The preview evening of Harbour went well – there was a really nice buzz, good conversations, several sales and an upcoming commission!
Harbour runs until the 30th June. Many thanks to all who came along and to Terence at the Freespace gallery for his help and good cheer.
The Freespace Gallery was the perfect scale for these smaller works, the wall screen was a good feature too, displaying a showreel of art collaborations between myself, composer/cellist Atzi Muramatsu and poet Jennifer L Williams. (Atzi recently won a BAFTA Best Composer Award at the BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards, very well deserved!)
This is the start of a busy summer this year – my next exhibition will be on a bigger scale with an entirely new theme inspired by the village of Casares in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. More about that next week…
Today’s paintings of Crail and Elie Harbours, for the upcoming exhibition Harbour. Details Here
These were painted today from sketches yesterday at both harbours. Crail is a quite typical Fife fishing village which has similarities with many of the atmospheric harbours along the east coast, but Elie feels different entirely – quite dreamlike. I’m still working on capturing this, but really enjoyed the contrast of both styles today.
