Painting, residency at Merz Gallery

The Euchan Water

On residency at Merz Gallery in April 2021, I worked mainly outdoors in the countryside initially in the woods along the Euchan Water.

The River Nith

When the weather improved I painted on a bend in the River Nith as far down the path as I could go…

Abandoned Cottages

A terrace of abandoned cottages at the edge of the village was amazingly atmospherice. Here I made small paintings and three collage paintings incorporating found materials.

The Bothy Green House

I created paintings on the Bothy Green House, a glassed shed built by artists Rhona Jack and Callum Wallis in May 2020. Ashes to Ashes, developed an earlier window painting idea I can see you from my bubble done on the windows of my Edinburgh flat during lockdown.
