Perthshire Open Studios 2018 – this year I am going to share space with painter Stewart Graham and jeweller Sheila Roussel. Stewart’s studio in Alyth is listed as #14 orange route in the event brochure, already available in many shops, cafés, libraries all over Perth & Kinross. A selection of my linoprints will be on display in Stewart’s lovely cottage. This is one of them.

Drawing: mixed media

This mixed media drawing was on display at the 10th Anniversary Exhibition of Perthshire Open Studios in Perth Civic Hall. The exhibition was part of the inaugural Platform Festival, a week-long celebration of contemporary art and culture across Perth & Kinross at the end of March 2017.

The Second of Winter Solstice

The drawing was inspired by a friend’s poem about his vision of winter solstice:
“on that day creatures living under rocks crawl to sit on long stems of the moon flower” […]
“all red turns pink takes a breather and returns to green and all shall be well for one second”.
Gerhard Kress 2016
