Patricia CainThe subject matter of Patricia Cain’s work is the weave of a hedge, or the complex architecture of a dockyard, or an abstracted landscape distilling a place into colour and form. Beneath Cain’s images there is always the pure energy of drawing. Cain explores how our minds construct meaning from what at first appear to be abstract marks. Often on a large scale, Cain’s innovative work in mixed media and pastel takes us to “a place where observation turns inwards,” and where “This exchange of process and energy leads to continual transformation.”
Allan MacDonaldAllan MacDonald (b. 1965) is regarded as one of the UK’s most respected and accomplished landscape artists. He transforms the way we see the Scottish landscape; not as a view, but as a living presence. MacDonald’s masterful work in oils in anchored in sheer physicality, going out to face the elements in all weathers in pursuit of understanding. This distinctly Northern Romantic tradition, seeking connection with the Divine in Nature, is invested with spirituality and aspiration. We feel it in the human scale of Caspar David Fredrich’s Monk by the Sea, Canadian artist Tom Thomson’s sublime visions of Algonquin and in the illumination of vivid blue hope in MacDonald’s turbulent Highland skies. Allan MacDonald has lived most of his life in Inverness-shire and studied at the Edinburgh Collage of Art.
