Here are five works selected from our Spring Exhibition.
1: crescendo by ALLAN MACDONALD
crescendo - oil on canvas - 61cm x 91cm
This wonderful painting by ALLAN MACDONALD and is the smaller original version of the much larger sea painting of the same name in his show (Rock of Ages) here last year. It is a powerful example of MacDonald's use of paint and his feel for the elements.
2 The Grumbling Hive by ROBERT POWELL
|ROBERT POWELLThe Grumbling Hive - acrylic with screenprint - 38cm x 28cm|
This painting is reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch. Inspired by Bernard Mandeville's The Fable of the Bees (1714,) POWELL depicts the follies of civilsation. It is a little grotesque and a lot engrossing. The frame is by Kari de Keonigswarter.
3 Moonlit Walk by CHRISTINE WOODSIDE rsw rgi
|CHRISTINE WOODSIDE rsw rgi|
Moonlit Walk, Fife - mixed media - 81cm x 71cm
After a long absence, it is a great joy to exhibit work by CHRISTINE WOODSIDE again. This painting, 'Moonlit Walk Fife' is the largest WOODSIDE in the current show. It is a beautiful piece; rich with images, colour and evocations of life around her Fife studio.
4 Still Pool, Skye by BETH ROBERTSON FIDDES
|BETH ROBERTSON FIDDES|
Still Pool, Skye - mixed media - 92cm x 101cm
Few artists capture the majesty of the Highlands as well as ROBERTSON FIDDES. Here, she uses a blend of her own techniques to paint the Fairy Pools in Skye. Magical and tempting to dive in.
5 Ben Loyal Walk by Lotte Glob
Ben Loyal Walk - ceramic & rocks - 33cm x 21cm
