Delighted my installation has been featured in this years SSA Annual Exhibition.
Spent the day yesterday installing my installation ‘Votive Offerings’ as part of the:
Society of Scottish Artists
THE 118TH ANNUAL OPEN EXHIBITION
SCOTTISH NATIONAL GALLERY, THE ACADEMY,
Edinburgh, EH2 2EL
.21 December 2015 – 18 January 2016
(closed 25 & 26 December)
Open: Mon-Sat 10am-5pm, Sun 12-5pm
This installation consists of 45 paintings and 5 drawings on paper. They are representational depictions of posies of wild flowers I have made and left around Scotland over the last couple of years, all painted to scale in watercolour. They are pinned to the wall at each corner with insect pins. The piece explores the significance of the flower posey as an offering to the gods, to the living and to the dead, celebrating their exquisite detail.
