SELVEDGE Lorna McIntosh 5 - 29 September 2018 Lorna’s work explores the connections and affinities between 18th Century chemistry, early palaeontology, mineralogy and emblematics and issues of a more personal nature, resulting in paintings with layers of meaning. In the museum case at the centre of the exhibition there is an array of developmental materials that explain her working process in further detail. #LornaMcIntosh #TheScottishGallery #Selvedge #oilpainting #fineart #Archespaper #paper #paint #artcollector #ScottishArt #BritishArt

STILL • LANDSCAPE • LIFE⠀ ⠀ David Eustace⠀ ⠀ 5 - 29 September 2018⠀ ⠀ “These are the photographs I would have hoped⠀ to paint.”⠀ ⠀ DAVID EUSTACE⠀ ⠀ An iron bridge, exposed to acid rain, frost, graffiti,⠀ repair, vandalism, pollution and wear becomes a⠀ paradigm for human experience but also for a⠀ painter’s technique. The scouring, building up and⠀ removing of material, dripping and throwing of paint⠀ and even the chance or ‘automatic’ so welcomed in⠀ dada practice, are all in the armoury of the painter⠀ who recognises that texture is part of the abstract.⠀ Eustace’s discovery of such a bridge in West London⠀ led him to make a series of abstract, painterly⠀ images in one day which are no less about time⠀ passing than the Harris works, but whose creation⠀ cemented for the artist a deep connection with⠀ painting. His subsequent ‘discovery’ of a parallel⠀ aesthetic in aspects in the work of Keith Vaughan⠀ and Morandi proved charming and confirmatory:⠀ the elegy of time passing, of emerging change,⠀ tonal subtlety and layering of texture could be⠀ constructed of captured.⠀ ⠀ GUY PEPLOE⠀ ⠀ #DavidEustace #photography #TheScottishGallery #photographs #series #international #Scottishart #JulieLawson #ScottishNationalPortraitGallery #StillLandscapeLife #GuyPeploe

UNEARTHED Stephen Bowers 5 - 29 September 2018 He plays with the historical and cultural signifiers associated with certain iconographies and Australian ‘cliches’ recur in his work. Parrots and cockatoos, are signature images, which he has described as being like personal ‘totems’, symbolic birds from his childhood. To those of us who have lived our lives in the Northern hemisphere these are exotic creatures, but they were ever-present in the once rural Sylvania where Bowers grew up. It has been suggested that for him they are ‘minatory symbols of larrikin defiance in the face of relentless urbanisation’.1 Other icons include Stubb’s Kongorou and the Sydney Harbour bridge. Surfaces are also embedded with fragments of William Morris wallpapers, Toile de Jouy fabrics, and the characters from Tenniel’s original illustrations for Alice in Wonderland that have been seemingly relocated to Australia. There are always more reasons than the purely decorative for their appropriation.

STILL • LANDSCAPE • LIFE David Eustace 5 - 29 September 2018 Guy Peploe and David Eustace in conversation Would you call yourself a collector? Yes. But it’s not a collection as such; that’s too finite, its just stuff; but each object and picture become a part of you, adopted and personal. Sometimes things are found, or cost pennies; other times you shell out a great deal of money and make a sacrifice, but value to me is not measured by money. It might be worth a fortune or indeed very little but that leads us down another road in terms of what we measure as being of real value… for me it’s often walking past a simple little object and it making me stop and smile for all the right reasons and that’s rarely pounds and pennies. Have you ever regretted buying something or not buying either? No not really. There’s been times I wished I could have afforded something but I’ve tried to be realistic about it and understanding that for some reason it wasn’t meant to be at that time. I remember looking at an Irving Penn photographic (four section platinum “Cigarette”) print back in the mid 90’s. I think it was being offered (from a gallery in London) at £7,500. I saw the same print edition recently for sale in NYC for around $465,000 (US). But as I say it’s all relevant as in the mid 90’s £7,500 was worth far more than it is 20 years on; just look at house prices in Edinburgh, London or NYC in that time… it’s all relevant.

UNEARTHED Stephen Bowers 5 - 29 September 2018 The theme of nature into pattern and pattern within nature is explored in the William Morris camouflage plate series, where samples of patterns from familiar and less familiar sources, variously referencing blue and white tropes and William Morris wallpapers, jostle for attention. Juxtaposed amongst these abstracted passages of decorative design are carefully painted cockatoos or parrots, which appear on each plate. ‘Surface Tension: the ceramic art of Stephen Bowers’ John Neylon, Beyond Bravura, Wakefield Press, 2013, p39 William Morris Tulip and Willow Fragment Plate (left) Blue Willow Shard Bowl (right) 2018 wheel-thrown white earthenware, under-glaze colours, clear glaze, on-glaze enamel decal to base (right sold) Photograph: Grant Hancock #StephenBowers #ceramics #Australia #TheScottishGallery #paint #Unearthed #mugs #vibrant #colours #wheelthrown #earthenware #glaze #underglaze #lustre #enamal #decal

STILL • LANDSCAPE • LIFE David Eustace 5 - 29 September 2018 Guy Peploe and David Eustace in conversation When were you first aware of the idea of individual taste? Taste I guess is just an opinion, and everyone’s is valid. It’s just something I became aware of: what appealed, something beautiful that sparked the imagination, not necessarily something that was meant to be beautiful but something that clicked and felt right. I’ve always known what’s felt right as it comes from within, but still it’s only ever my opinion. How would you describe your overarching aesthetic? For me there’s an unspoken voice from within that for a moment when all in front of you just feels connected, balanced and right. It’s as though the soul is content. Something made with love or the result of an industrial process, or quite simply by chance. It can be natural or man made it’s all about what fits and feels matched without trying too hard. It can be an ancient piece or something created only moments before. What matters is the balance, like a pair of bricks, side-by-side looking like a little house alongside a finely crafted piece of timeless Japanese porcelain. As a visual artist I see little difference between filing a camera frame or an empty room in a stately hall. It’s creating balance and connecting spaces. The artworks photographed are from Eustace’s Curated Room: James Cowie Still Life with Tanagra Figure pencil drawing 19.5 x 24 cms Gerald Leslie Brockhurst The Basque Boy, 1944 Lithograph 44 x 32 cms edition of 10 Gerald Leslie Brockhurst Head of Basque, 1944 Lithograph 42 x 32 cms edition of 10 James Cowie Figure with Apple and Vase Watercolour and conte 20.5 x 24.5 cms These are a mixture of pieces from The Scottish Gallery and from David's own collection. #DavidEustace #photography #TheScottishGallery #photographs #series #international #Scottishart #JulieLawson #ScottishNationalPortraitGallery #StillLandscapeLife

STILL • LANDSCAPE • LIFE⠀ ⠀ David Eustace⠀ ⠀ 5 - 29 September 2018⠀ ⠀ David Eustace is a photographer of international practice and repute who has worked across continents for over twenty-five years. The world through his camera lens is on occasion abstract; at times melancholic; always authentically seen and felt. ⠀ ⠀ In this exhibition, Eustace has brought together four portfolios of work – made in different places and at different times. What links them is indeed the overarching theme of time. ⠀ ⠀ In Bridge, seen in an instant and realised photographically over the course of one day, Eustace has found, in its accidental, painted, abraded, rusted and weathered surfaces, abstract art. ⠀ ⠀ In the series Mar a Bha, he responds intuitively to the tranquillity and timelessness of the landscape on the Isle of Harris, through the medium of a bygone age – photogravure. ⠀ ⠀ Polaroids comprises a single wall in New York observed over time, a subject constantly changing as layer is laid upon layer. Posters, notices and graffiti are to be seen added and removed and created is a palimpsest of disconnected fragments of words and images; the Babel of our times. ⠀ ⠀ Desert Lines continues to explore the theme of transience, the ancient but everchanging mountains cut through by roads are understood in one single unified vision.⠀ ⠀ JULIE LAWSON⠀ Senior Curator, Scottish National Portrait Gallery⠀ Editor of Studies in Photography⠀ ⠀ Desert Lines vii, 2010-2012⠀ Printed on 320gsm Hahnemühle Fine Art Archival Paper⠀ Edition of 20⠀ 24 x 30.5 cms⠀ ⠀ Mar a Bha vii, 2018⠀ printed on 250gsm Japanese bamboo paper⠀ edition of 12⠀ 40.6 x 50.8 cms⠀ ⠀ Bridge viii, 2017⠀ printed on 300gsm Archival Pigment paper⠀ edition of 8⠀ 81 x 106 cms⠀ ⠀ Polaroids, 2004⠀ Set of sixteen individual polaroids⠀ please contact The Gallery for more information⠀ ⠀ #DavidEustace #photography #TheScottishGallery #photographs #series #international #Scottishart #JulieLawson #ScottishNationalPortraitGallery #stilllandscapelife at The Scottish Gallery

ANN LITTLE 5 - 29 September 2018 Alongside these bold shapes and vivid colours I have continued to make tubes in more muted hues. These tubes were inspired by the papery bark of the birch trees which are prevalent in the countryside surrounding my home and workshop. Playing around at the workbench I began to leave the join in these tubes open. My colourful enameled elements could now slot into these tubes combining my two contrasting styles of work. One piece inspires the next and the work naturally evolves.

ANN LITTLE 5 - 29 September 2018 I am drawn to colour and enamels provide a beautiful palette to work with. Windsor blue, parrot green, signal red and ochre yellow are some of the opaque enamels I of-ten use. Powdered enamel can’t be mixed like paint to create new colours. Layers are built up and each layer is fired in the kiln before the next is applied. My necklaces are enamelled on both sides allowing them to be worn either way. The longer neck-laces flip and change colour with the movement of the wearer.

UNEARTHED Stephen Bowers 5 - 29 September 2018 Bowers’ images are more than simple acts of decorative appropriation and whimsy.

UNEARTHED Stephen Bowers 5 - 29 September 2018 Stephen Bowers is one of Australia’s leading ceramic artists, but until now his work has rarely been seen in the UK. Known for his sumptuous, layered, painterly vitreous surfaces and direct visual literacy, his work is at once strangely familiar, yet simultaneously mysterious.

MODERN MASTERS VIII - SPECIAL FESTIVAL EDITION Group Exhibition. 02 Aug 2018 - 01 Sep 2018 Watch Kate Downie, featured in our August exhibition MODERN MASTERS VIII, talking in 2017 about the Queensferry Crossing - subject matter of her painting "New Day Crossing." The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present a special edition of our Modern Masters series for the Edinburgh Art Festival which reflects the diverse range of artists that have graced The Gallery’s walls past and present. Highlights include the masterpiece Luxembourg Gardens by SJ Peploe which is beautifully contrasted by the much earlier example of Dean Village, Edinburgh. Breezy Day by FCB Cadell was recently acquired from the much-publicised Harrison collection and we have paintings by Elizabeth Blackadder from four different decades and unusual examples by Victoria Crowe, John Houston and Robin Philipson. We welcome back the monumental Three Sisters of Lucca by Alberto Morrocco which was the centrepiece of his Festival exhibition at The Gallery in 1986. The Gallery acknowledges that 2018 marks the centenary of the end of WWI and 100 years of women’s suffrage and to mark these special events, we have included two short chapters paying tribute to three artists who survived the War in Adam Bruce Thomson, Cadell and William Gillies as well as a short history of The Gallery’s role in supporting women artists. We have represented women artists since the 1890’s; gallery director Peter McOmish Dott began a series of exhibitions curated by The Gallery which saw the inclusion of women as equals alongside their male counterparts. #modernmasters #thescottishgallery

A CERTAIN LIGHT Victoria Crowe 02 August - 01 September 2018 Throughout the exhibition images which look very like the world are actually revealed as deeply abstracted. Images which appear to stress formal structure emerge as closely observed elements of the natural world. The paintings of Venice embody that dichotomy directly. By their very subject matter images of Venice have to partake of that movement back and forth between depicted view and emotive history that accompanies all images of the city. They are complex images, shifting genre and therefore apparent meaning as you consider them. The palimpsest surface heightens the ambiguity and posits an unknowable content, forever gently out of reach. The past is central to the subject matter not as melancholy, but it is recognised as gone. The inevitability of the passing of time is recognised and lamented as human experience. Memory holds events and images in the present but as reflected in a dark glass.

THE CERAMIST Bodil Manz 02 August - 01 September 2018 “To me the cylinder is like a sheet of paper on which I can do different things depending on where I am in life. That is why I do not get fed up with them. I am often asked [what inspires me], but that is not an issue. On the contrary, having enough time to carry out my ideas and thoughts is the problem. The excitement I feel is what keeps me going. The outcome of my experiments with the material. If I have a beautiful glaze or clay, then the ideas of how to use it will pop up. And things happen in life. Everyday life, a trip away, my garden, people around me. Those are the things that inspire me. The privilege of being an artist is that the work never stops. It is always there.” Bodil Manz, 2018 (United and Apart, CLAY (Museum of Ceramic Art Denmark)) #ceramics #BodilManz #porcelain #TheScottishGallery #edinburghartfestival at The Scottish Gallery

THE CERAMIST Bodil Manz 02 August - 01 September 2018 Manz’s work is often created from literal translations from objects (domestic or industrial) in the studio or home. Other patterns emerge from observations from the surrounding landscape or in response to a place; the possibilities of abstraction are endless for Manz and the subtle refinement reflects the dedication to her craft and continued dialogue and interest in her subject. Her work is architectural and speaks of the nature of structure and form and the end result is at once personal and universal.

MODERN MASTERS VIII - SPECIAL FESTIVAL EDITION 02 August - 01 September 2018 The drawings Wilhelmina Barns-Graham made in Italy, Switzerland and the south coast from 1951-1954 are amongst her most accomplished and make a vital contribution to the early St Ives School. Her sweeping line, restraint in colour and certainty in the information she chooses to include predict her future as an abstract painter but at this stage remain clear, poignant observations of real places and memories. St Martin is a parish on the south coast of the island where ancient fields are divided by hedgerows above cliffs and a rocky coastline.

A CERTAIN LIGHT⠀ ⠀ Victoria Crowe⠀ ⠀ 02 August - 01 September 2018⠀ ⠀ The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present A Certain Light by Victoria Crowe for the Edin-burgh Art Festival 2018. Many will already have seen her exhibition at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery Beyond Likeness and will be looking forward to her major retrospective at the Edinburgh City Art Centre in 2019. But for all artists the most important painting is the next one and The Scottish Gallery since the in-ception of the Festival has showcased new work by Scotland’s greatest living artists. A Certain Light is the fruit of three years work including paintings of the landscape surrounding her home in West Linton, works inspired by her res-idency at Dumfries House and a new series of luminous still life interiors of haunting beauty. Victoria Crowe’s work continues to reflect on the nature of light, the way it reveals and ob-scures; she seeks the half light of dusk when colour can be enhanced as the light dies and the mind is invited to dwell on the unknowable. In Venice, where she has a home and second studio, the sense of time passed and passing is intense, bathed in a palette of reds, where the eternal and the ephemeral exist in perfect bal-ance. We are grateful to John Morrison and Pe-ter Davidson for their insights, eloquence and poetry in the text which accompanies this won-derful exhibition.⠀ ⠀ Victoria Crowe⠀ L’ultima Cena with Green Quince⠀ oil on board⠀ 61 x 40.5 cms ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ • •⠀ • •⠀ • •⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #TheScottishGallery #EdinburghArtFestival #ModernMastersVIII #wilhelminabarnsgraham #dameelizabethblackadder #fcbcadell #victori-acrowe #alandavie #katedownie #sirwilliamgillies #johnhouston #sirwilliammac-taggart #davidmcclure #brucemclean #jamesmorrison #albertomor-rocco #jamesmcintoshpatrick #denispeploe #sjpeploe #sirrobinphilipson #anneredpath #jamesdownierobertson #adambrucethomson

MODERN MASTERS VIII - SPECIAL FESTIVAL EDITION 02 August - 01 September 2018 Alberto Morrocco’s Three Sisters of Lucca was the centrepiece for his seminal exhibition with us for the Edinburgh Festival in 1986. Morrocco had emerged as a brilliant colourist in the years after setting aside the burden of his duties as Head of Drawing and Painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 1982. He had lifelong filled sketchbooks with colour notes and drawings and had a mind full of ideas. His early academic training and debts to Cowie, Robert Sivell and the Quattrocento were abandoned in favour of direct painting with the brush, brilliant unmodulated colour and picture designs which came directly from the conceit of the subject. The Three Sisters work is monumental in scale, clearly based on a sketch and memory, the cool interior behind a sun-drenched façade, the stylised women, doves and compotier with single pear is pure, joyous Morrocco.

MODERN MASTERS VIII - SPECIAL FESTIVAL EDITION 02 August - 01 September 2018 The Queensferry Crossing: A Facebook Tale Posted on Facebook in early February 2018: “A strange and exciting request: does anyone know a lorry driver who might be willing to take me as a passenger across the Queensferry Crossing? I am making crossing studies for my next series of paintings but need a higher viewpoint than from a mere car. I would be happy to swap an etching or print for the privilege of a high moving viewpoint of the bridge.” This simple post was shared nine times and within an hour I had the ‘friend of a friend’ who ran logistics for freight transport across Europe, mostly between Italy and Scotland, making it happen. Three days later I was on an Italian lorry driven by a delightful Romanian, crossing the new bridge at 20 miles per hour, about 12 feet above the road surface with an excellent view, drawing fast and filming all the while with an iPhone taped to the windscreen. Sometimes the best implementation of fresh work happens fast and with proper intensity. And so it is with the crossing drawings of the new bridge. Is it trickier to draw than the other bridges? I think so: more elusive, less bridge, more crossing. It is unexpectedly graceful and certainly not a place to linger on. It’s all about the journey.

MODERN MASTERS VIII - SPECIAL FESTIVAL EDITION 02 August - 01 September 2018 James Morrison’s view north across the Montrose basin towards the foothills of the Grampians is one of his finest Angus landscapes, monumental plein air works which chronical the seasons and are deeply imbued with the history of the land. The road, which curves down the gentle hill, is unpassable with new snow whose brilliant glow lends sharp relief to the halfburied fence-posts and gate. The storm has passed to the North leaving a cold, still clarity to the aspect, a day for the farmers to tend to their beasts, clear the roads and light the fire.

MODERN MASTERS VIII - SPECIAL FESTIVAL EDITION 02 August - 01 September 2018 The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present a special edition of our Modern Masters series for the Edinburgh Art Festival which reflects the diverse range of artists that have graced The Gallery’s walls past and present. James Robertson was a painter’s painter whose consistent, inspired response to the Scottish landscape was more influential than many of his more celebrated peers at The Glasgow School of Art. Using collage and mixed media, like both Barbara Rae and Duncan Shanks, he developed an abstract language to create paintings which capture real experience, evocations of time and place, moments of weather transformation which are both beautiful and heartfelt. Garden in Snow is an essay in winter colour, the garden gripped by snow, raw but reasserting its familiarity.

Sometimes the finest of lines are traced and revealed across the inner and outer surface and in other works solid blocks of colour, reminiscent of the palette of Soviet painters of the twenties, provide geometric counterpoints to the delicacy of form and material.

The deceptively simple cylinder is the vehicle for Bodil Manz's art. Casting porcelain slip to create delicate semi-transparent vessels, Manz has spent over three decades refining her exploration of the cylinder form.

SAINTS, SOULS AND SINNERS Michael McVeigh 4 - 28 July 2018 Michael McVeigh’s second exhibition at The Scottish Gallery develops one of the central themes that are so memorable from his inaugural show. Focussing often on Edinburgh the mood of the paintings shifts between a visionary tone with evocations of both folk-art and sophisticated Surrealism, and a late Realist language, evoking memories of Glasgow paint-ers such as Tom MacDonald and Josef Herman, in subject and in social engagement, if not in handling. Leith Walk from Calton Hill is a realist related painting and the inclination is to read the image as social comment. The cold winter light, snow and dark sky do not offer a com-forting reflection. The high tenements parallel to the picture plane face the viewer and the street feels deserted rather than merely empty. The disquiet the image evokes is heightened by the right hand building with its awkward skewed perspective destabilising what would otherwise be a static, silent vision.

KOREAN CONNECTION 4 - 28 July 2018 William Lee b. 1973 Incheon, Seoul, South Korea William Lee lives and works in Seoul, South Korea. He completed his BA (hons) in Silver-smithing & Metalwork at Camberwell College of Arts, University of London in 2004, be-fore becoming Artist in Residence in the Jewellery & Metalwork department at Sheffield Hallam University in 2006. ‘I use a basic technique that is central to my artistic practice. Through the process of rais-ing from one disc of silver, only by hand hammering, I construct innovative forms and sur-faces inspired by oriental traditional philosphy. By recreating the form and shape of tradi-tional Korean ceramics, I seek to interpret a cultural code in restrained vessel forms. Flowing lines and subtle marks appear to be melt on the surface. As an artist, l place the greatest importance on continuously creating works. This can be interpreted in a number of ways, but what I mean here is that it is important that the pre-sent work and its end-product become a reason and driving force for the future’.

TOWARDS ABSTRACTION John Brown 4 - 28 July 2018 The concept of an abstract image is subjective; all images are open to differing interpretation. Since Malevich, who is generally credited with making the first abstract image, painters have sometimes sought to eliminate easily identifiable motifs. Instead the hope is to engender an emotional response from a viewer: Rothko even listed the elements which he believed made up meaning in his painting: death, sensuality, tension, irony, play, chance and hope. Another approach is for the painter to choose a subject deliberately beyond a conventional reading, an expanse of sea without a horizon, a tangle of wild growth around a pond, or the crumbling walls and repainted door of a Havana tenement. In this way the viewer can be transported to a place through a physical/emotional catch, a subconscious response to be reconciled with our own interpretation, sometimes assisted by a title. This is where John Brown’s Towards Abstraction is found. He writes of how collaged elements can be a starting point for his composition, and here he shares a technique with Scottish painters such as Duncan Shanks and Joan Eardley.

KOREAN CONNECTION 4 - 28 July 2018 Jongjin Park b. 1982 Seoul, South Korea Jongjin Park received his MA in Ceramics at Cardiff Metropolitan University, and is cur-rently pursuing a PhD in Ceramics at Kookmin University, Seoul. Jongjin Park’s pieces are made using a technique Park stumbled upon while researching his Master’s thesis at Cardiff University. By painting clay slip onto pieces of paper towel, lay-ering them, applying pigment and then firing them at 1280 degrees, Park creates a mass-like trompe l’oeil. The resulting objects not only mimic the appearance of wood, they’re also strong enough to withstand typical woodworking tools, like an electric sander or a Dremel, which allows Park to create the container-like pieces. In some of the work, Park binds as many as 1,000 sheets together that can take up to three days to create. The in-tegration of paper in his work allows the ceramic to imitate another material.

KOREAN CONNECTION 4 - 28 July 2018 Park Hong-gu b. 1966 Kyung-book province, South Korea Park Hong Gu is an established furniture designer and sculptor based in South Korea with over 30 years experience. He became well known for his ‘Abstract Burnt Painting’ furni-ture and objects with unique burnt surfaces. Trained initially as a furniture maker, Park constantly trives to also create non-functional work. Now at a new stage in his career achieved through meditation, Park No longer aims to create functional pieces and instead produces purely aesthetic forms. Park carves wood-en logs into triangular forms. This is a challenge as a woodworker, due to the great wood waste it creates. Choosing this form has become a symbolic practice for Park, signifying his deep routed, fearful journey from practical woodworker to artist. This meditational performance has created self-reflective works. The series What is left is to Park, the pur-est work of art and a true representation of self.

KOREAN CONNECTION 4 - 28 July 2018 Kyosun Jung b. 1984 Seoul, South Korea ‘Research, original design and decorative features made to the highest standards is fun-damental to my work. My technical work requires focused concentration and skill to pro-duce quality outcomes, and I do all scales of precious metalwork. I am always extending my technical learning and manufacturing capabilities and I am very interested in reviving traditional techniques in combination with technology i.e. Puk weld-ing. This combination of old and new creates a different visual identity and the main tech-niques I use at present are; wire applications, hand engraving, puk welding, engine turning and enamelling. I find and utilise inspiring research from nature and geometry with its infinite creations for patterns and textures. For example, observing the linear qualities of water provide plenty of material for the decorative detailing in my designs and I also incorporate aspects of Ko-rean and European aesthetics. My designs start as freehand drawings that are then taken into 3D forms with models and maquettes that are subsequently transferred onto the computer. I work well using both hand and machine technical skills to realise my designs and concepts. With my recent work, I have taken my enamel pieces inspiration from the night sky, sun-set and sunrise. I love the sky’s different colours - it’s always changing; days and night, seasons.’ Constellation Brooches by Kyosun Jung, 2018 silver, enamel, gold foil #KoreanConnection #Korean #Connection #jewellery #silversmith #glass #ceramics #UK #Korea #objects #TheScottishGallery #ContemporaryJewellery #JewelleryCollection #JewelleryCollectors #ModernJewellery #YunJuCheol #ParkHonggu #KyosunJung #ChoiKeeryong #HyejeongKim #DongHyunKim #HeeseungKoh #InhwaLee #WilliamLee #JongjinPark #ParkSeohee #BaeSejin #MisunWon

The landscape-themed exhibition, 'From the Sublime to the Concrete' has one week left to run at the Scottish Gallery in Dundas Street, Edinburgh. The show is curated by the artist Derrick Guild @derrick.guild and I am grateful to be displaying 24 sketchbooks and three pencil drawings. The works of all 21 exhibiting artists are included in an excellent 84-page catalogue. It forms a brilliant array of approaches to landscape. The cover artwork is an oil-painted imagined landscape by the extraordinarily talented Martin Greenland. Many thanks to all who have visited and for the many encouraging comments and messages. #thescottishgallery #derrickguild #landscape #landscapepainting #landscapeart #sketchbook #moleskine #dailysketch #dailydrawing #drawing #sketch #tatesketchbook

I received an Artist Award from ‘Fife Contemporary Arts and Crafts’ to go to research the wild flowers growing in the ‘Machair’ lands on the Islands. The wild flowers are incredibly abundant and beautiful. I was overwhelmed by them and wasn’t sure how to work with them, in response I began making, photographing and leaving the wild flower posies. ⠀ ⠀ In 2014 I began painting these posies from the photographs in watercolour on paper and the ‘Votive Offerings’ project evolved from there. I exhibited the first 50 ‘Votive Offer-ings’, as an installation of 50 works on paper pinned to the wall, at The Society of Scottish Artists Annual Exhibition 2014/15 where it won The Meffan Gallery Solo Exhibition Award. ⠀ ⠀ Kirsty Lorenz, May 2018⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Posies, which Kirsty began making on a field trip to the Outer Hebrides⠀ ⠀ Votive Offering No.44 – Purple Vetch, watercolour on paper, 30 x 27 cms⠀ ⠀ Kirsty on Berneray Island, 2013⠀ ⠀ ⠀ •⠀ ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ ⠀ •⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #TheScottishGallery #KirstyLorenz #TheBlessingoftheRain #VotiveOfferings #June #bo-tanicalpainting #painting #flowers #scottish #outdoors #nature #beauty #watercolour #oil #artcollector

KIRSTY LORENZ The Blessing of the Rain 6 - 30 JUNE 2018 Votive Offering’s After Mary Delany This series of paintings of wild flower posies are inspired by the work of Mary Delany (1700 – 1788), in particular her extraordinary collection of over 1000 botanical studies made in paper ‘mosaics’ or collage that she created between the age of 72 and 82. The collection of these are held in the archive of The British Museum, where Kirsty was able to spend some time studying them. Her attention to detail, the dark backgrounds and rich palette, and the compositional repetition are reflected in these works. The posies de-picted in these paintings were made of wild flowers blooming in rural Fife in June. 8 Votive Offering No91 - Dog Rose after Mary Delany, oil on linen, 50 x 40 cms • • • • • • #TheScottishGallery #KirstyLorenz #TheBlessingoftheRain #VotiveOfferings #June #bo-tanicalpainting #painting #flowers #scottish #outdoors #nature #beauty #watercolour #oil #artcollector

The short film is of Sea Squill and Rock Rose growing beside a sparkly sea on Orkney. The film is meditative, an ants eye view of the flowers in the breeze and the arrival of a small spider. A hand then picks the flowers. The painting is of the posy created from the flowers, a gift offered to the viewer.⠀ ⠀ This was one of three works made in response to a research trip to Orkney where the artist worked with filmmaker Mark Jenkins. ⠀ ⠀ Gift, watercolour and acrylic on paper, 43 x 35 cms⠀ ⠀ ⠀ •⠀ ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ ⠀ •⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #TheScottishGallery #KirstyLorenz #TheBlessingoftheRain #VotiveOfferings #June #botanicalpainting #painting #flowers #scottish #outdoors #nature #beauty #watercolour #oil #artcollector

The pearls balance precariously on a simple wave of silver – inspired by the ups and downs of day-to-day life.’⠀ ⠀ Elizabeth Jane Campbell, June 2018⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Balancing Pearls Brooch, 2018⠀ oxidised silver, copper, matt white enamel,⠀ cultured freshwater pearls⠀ ⠀ Misun Won (b.1979)⠀ ⠀ Misun Won graduated with a masters degree in 2008 from Edinburgh College of Art. Originally from Korea, her work is associated with the delicacy of highly refined handcraft from the East. Her extensive experience of living and working in both Britain and Korea has given her a broader cultural outlook. It has enabled her to position herself in what she calls “neutral territory” and to examine both cultures with “fresh eyes”. Influences from both countries can be seen in her work: a major inspiration is Korean patchwork, but this highly traditional form is interpreted through Western fractal geometry; creating dynamic structures for her collection.⠀ ⠀ Rhombus 3D Brooch, 2018⠀ silver, Keumboo 24ct gold foil, freshwater pearls⠀ ⠀ Etsuko Sonobe (b.1955)⠀ ⠀ Etsuko Sonobe is an established Japanese jewellery artist who trained at Musashino Art University in Tokyo. Over the past twenty years, her striking understated gold jewellery has been exhibited and is collected internationally. There is a formal strength and invention to her pieces, as she says: 'the form, the material and the structure must relate to one another: I am always aware of this necessity when I am making a piece'.⠀ ⠀ Pearl Rings, 2018⠀ yellow precious metal, south sea pearl⠀ ⠀ #TheScottishGallery #Pearl #ElizabethJaneCampbell #EtsukoSonobe #MisunWon #contemporaryjewellery #jewellery #exhibition #newjewellery #silversmithing #goldsmiths #TheScottishGallery #introducing #fineart #historicalmotifs #natura

Sketchbook inspiration! 5 years without missing a day! #Repost @w_john_hewitt with @get_repost ・・・ Five years' worth of sketchbooks. On 2nd June 2013 I started doing daily observational drawings in pocket sized Moleskine sketchbooks. I have managed not to miss a day since and there are now over 2,000 drawings and in 52 books. I intended to stop at the 50 sketchbook point and then decided to go on until today, the fifth anniversary. However, I keep finding new things to draw... I am very grateful to Derrick Guild @derrick.guild for including me in the exhibition he has curated about landscape, From the Sublime to the Concrete, at the Scottish Gallery, in Edinburgh. I will be displaying 24 of these sketchbooks and selected images will be available as digital prints.

Five years' worth of sketchbooks. On 2nd June 2013 I started doing daily observational drawings in pocket sized Moleskine sketchbooks. I have managed not to miss a day since and there are now over 2,000 drawings and in 52 books. I intended to stop at the 50 sketchbook point and then decided to go on until today, the fifth anniversary. However, I keep finding new things to draw... I am very grateful to Derrick Guild @derrick.guild for including me in the exhibition he has curated about landscape, From the Sublime to the Concrete, at the Scottish Gallery, in Edinburgh. I will be displaying 24 of these sketchbooks and selected images will be available as digital prints. The show will run from 6th-30th June. #dailydrawing #dailysketch #tatesketchbook #sketch #drawing #thescottishgallery #kleinimaging #moleskine #sketchbooks

SPEY PATH AND STRANDLINE⠀ ⠀ Angie Lewin⠀ ⠀ 02 May - 02 June 2018⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Angie Lewin presents her second solo exhibition at The Scottish Gallery focusing on the medium of watercolour - Spey Path and Strandline. Angie Lewin is best known as a printmaker and designer whose sensitive patterns and motifs are inspired by the English Arts and Crafts movement and the work of Bawden and Ravilious. She divides her life between homes in Edinburgh and Speyside and this geographic diversity is reflected in her plant observations and interweaving of the natural and domestic worlds.⠀ ⠀ Angie Lewin in her Studio, 2017⠀ ⠀ Photograph: Alun Callender⠀ ⠀ ⠀ •⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ •⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ •⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ •⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #TheScottishGallery #AngieLewin #watercolour #printing #SpeyPath #Strandline #StJudes
