Think of an impressionist painting: warm beaches, warm afternoons, parasols, beautiful people and very slight inclines, and throw this away. Here we have nature at its most powerful: towering waves, foam and vortexes of paint reaching everywhere. There are dark blues and blacks with bits of pink and green amide swirls of action. Put away the parasol and put on a survival suit, we’re in Shetland; alive in the north not melting in the south.
Painting was never meant to be polite and these works certainly aren't.
