Remains in the landscape

04-08-2017

Pauline McGee and Clare Yarrington

This exhibition explores the cycle of creation and destruction evident in the landscape. Pauline and Clare are fascinated by the striking visual remains of man-made structures that are slowly being reclaimed by the natural world and by the formations of nature that are continually being shaped by the elements.

On show will be a range of work such as drawings of Nairn Viaduct and Wester Ross hut circles and mixed media pieces inspired by the dry stone walls of Glen Isla and prehistoric standing stones. 2017 is the Scottish Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology and this exhibition highlights some of the wonderful sites in Scotland such as the West Lothian prehistoric burial site of Cairnpapple Hill. In addition both Clare and Pauline have made new works for the Line Gallery exhibition inspired by nearby Cockleroy Hill.

“The dynamic, ever-changing remains in the landscape captures both our imaginations. While we both like to experience the landscape first hand through walking and climbing, our distinctive backgrounds and artistic practices mean that we interpret these experiences in different ways”

Please join us for an exhibition preview from 2.00 to 4.00 pm on Saturday August 5th. Everyone will be very welcome
