Finally, my work for the 2016 Moray College Degree Show is finished and hung! One of the paintings has been selected for the Society of Scottish Artists exhibition at the RSA in November 2016.

The show also includes a portfolio of smaller scale ink paintings.

These paintings are part of my Dark Island project, a reflection on a year of ill health (and fear of ill health) and how this was emotionally projected onto the landscape tropes of Uist.

The paintings make use of biological, botanical, geological and radiological imagery. The media used makes reference to traditional Chinese landscape painting (ink, hanging scrolls, perspective).

The exhibition is open in Elgin from 13-18 June 2016
