SOLO EXHIBITION

Our responses to dislocation and pain are as varied and personal as our grief – mine was to draw, compulsively. I drew for two days, almost without stopping, and on the third day found I couldn’t draw any more.

This exhibition began when I was sitting amongst long grasses, by standing stones. I had spent a lot of time with my dog Orla in mutual appreciation of the sights, sounds and scents around us in this special place.

Having said a sad but inevitable goodbye to her a few weeks before, the moment provoked specific memories but also seemed to conjure other, human bereavements reaching back generations, and deepened my reflections on the subject of loss and the preciousness of life.

SOLO SHOW

UPRIGHT GALLERY, EDINBURGH
18 JUNE - 8 JULY 2022


This exhibition gathered together work made during a period of unexpected nesting during the pandemic. Through close observation of found feathers and nests, I slowed down and settled in to make studies of these beautiful, complex and perfectly imperfect structures.

With pieces developed through drawing, painting, monoprinting and collage, Nesting features works on paper, wood and in textiles.
