Doubtfire Gallery, Edinburgh: Beth Robertson Fiddes, Western Coastlines

The Doubtfire Gallery presents a solo exhibition by one of the country’s most innovative landscape painters, Beth Robertson Fiddes. Beth captures Scotland’s western islands, coasts and mountains in a dynamic and moving treatment of paint, texture and technique. Translucent waters · tides and streams · the light source on a distant hill · the richness of the rock surfaces and the vibrant sheen of sand as the tide ebbs. All are captured in layers of paint and collage in a painstaking journey – drawing from life in these distant locations, often hiking for miles with a tent on her back, through to the finished painting – giving the viewer an instant emotion and vision of a distant place, almost other-worldly. The contemporary treatment of the raw and mystical beauty of these places has earned Beth many followers of her work.

This major new collection sees Beth exploring the coastlines and shores of the Western Highlands and Islands of Scotland.  Born in the isle of Tiree, Beth is revisiting echoes of her past and her early childhood paintings of the sea on trips with her father.

This award winning artist has gone from strength to strength since her first solo exhibition at Doubtfire Gallery in 2012.
