HEART OF MATTER

We recognise the familiar, locate the unusual and are warned of delight and danger by signs. There are signs which trigger memory and knowledge, some which remind us of past experiences, there are signs which convey energy or excitement, there are signs of the sacred. This recent body of work seen at the Doubtfire Gallery, Edinburgh, take their origin from memories of landscape. Not specific, named places but the sensed, dreamed locations encased within the matter which constitute those places. The language of the paintings, the material substance, the cursive drawing, the colour within the medium are all painterly signs of perceived experiences. They refer to the power of wind and rain, movement, flux and motion, the scratchy, pungency of undergrowth or the wetness of water in rivers and lochs.
