Artist portfolio - Libby Scott
In my current practice, I draw my inspiration from the surrounding landscape of Perthshire, the West Coast and Mountainous regions of Scotland. I seek to convey the symbiotic relationship between the elements of weather, land and the interplay of the hidden and the revealed scene. I explore and investigate the ancient and contemporary unnoticed man made marks on the land through boundary lines, field marks, pathways and animal tracks across the hills.
I use a variety of artistic processes to convey my sense of journeying through the landscape and my feeling of being part of the scene.
My work is mixed media on board using materials such as acrylic, ink, pigment, primers and I also incorporate found materials and objects that I find on my journey to express my intuitive response to the energy and enfolding drama of the landscape. These materials enable me to capture the feeling of light, movement and wildness of the elements. In my work I seek to evoke a glimpse, a moment in time and the sense of mood of the land and place.
