Explorations: landscape and the soul has officially opened and will now run from Monday 1st May through to Friday 26th May 2017 in the Foyer Gallery, Newton Dee, Aberdeen Exhibition in 2017
The pictures were unpacked on Thursday after their long journey from the Borders.
Decisions on the sequence were not as difficult as originally anticipated. We created 4 possible scenario’s and with help and input from various people from the community at Newton Dee it became obvious which of these worked the best. Friday was spent with tape measure, spirit level and a good eye for minor adjustments hanging the pictures and putting up labels.
An informal preview on Saturday afternoon saw a small gathering in the Foyer Gallery. I – as the Artist now outside Studio Hundy – spoke about the research process involved in the transformation of the artwork from naturalistic landscapes to expressionistic abstractions and beyond.
The 17 artworks are the culmination of a number of years work and to see them together in the lovely light filled gallery space at Newton Dee was a real joy.
