Few artists are as attuned to the landscape of the West Highlands and Islands as Beth Robertson Fiddes. Mountains, pools and waterfalls are etched into her memory; with each element of the landscape rendered as a tactile, felt sense that strikes a balance between realism and abstraction. Fiddes conveys the expansive scale and Romantic vision of Highland landscape.
“There is magnificence to Beth Robertson Fiddes’s work. She uses everything she has - texture, scale, colour, composition - to recall the grandeur and myth of the Scottish landscape. The result is remarkable.”
Tony Davidson, Director Kilmorack Gallery
