People, places and self-reflection are tackled by three artists in the latest exhibition at Gallery Heinzel in Aberdeen.
Catriona Millar presents her largest body of work in ten years. She says, ‘As I painted during the series of lockdowns, I found myself expressing a strong sense of togetherness in my work. It’s always been there as a major theme, but it’s very much to the fore in these paintings. I like to think there is also an enduring joy and a feeling of hope in them.’
Margaret Evans saw her plans to reduce her international teaching and workshop commitments accelerated by the pandemic, forcing her to paint full-time. Without the distraction of travel, planning and teaching, she is enjoying a new-found freedom to express herself through her pastel landscapes.
Jacqueline Shortland creates ceramic sculpture inspired by what it means to be human and how we connect to nature. Her new body of work reflects time spent with family during the pandemic at home near the Cairngorm Mountains.
