Lara Scobie is presenting her second solo exhibition with the Scottish Gallery: Grapphica is a new collection in fine parian porcelain featuring bold and delicate layered linear patterns. Lara says, ‘Graphic pattern and bold colour continue to be a source of great enjoyment within my work, but lockdown has afforded me the time to further develop pattern and surface. This intensive period of work has allowed me to explore new qualities within the surface, concentrating on the texture of surface pattern and expanding on my interest in pattern and textiles including the warp and weft of woven cloth and layered stitching. My interests lie in both colour and texture, working with these elements to develop a symbiotic relationship of both surface and form.’

Also showing is the fourth solo exhibition by David Cook, whose vibrant oil paintings of his wild, seaside garden between his Aberdeenshire cottage and the rocky coast depict a fertile acre thrumming with life, as flowers and long grasses grow untamed, threatening to engulf his studio, and scenes of city life in Scotland by Michael McVeigh, and a new jewellery collection by Shelby Fitzpatrick made from laser-cut plastic and based on emerald cut shapes and facets.

The gallery’s website has a number of events marking the current series, including a Directors’ Tour of Applied Arts onTuesday 16th March and a Meet the Artist event on Wednesday 17th March, and there is a video looking at the works and artists.
