GROWTH: FÀS at Edinburgh’s Dundas St Gallery will bring together six diverse women artists celebrating the growth of developing their own unique artistic voices through art and love of the natural environment: Karin Chipulina, Iona Molleson, Lyndsay Fergus, Fiona Scroggie, May Chipulina and Emily Peel Yates.

Karin Chipulina, whose work is pictured above, uses natural plant-based materials in her work, which she connects to her view of the world and her environment and uses as a means of exploring ideas around identity, land and our relationship with it.

May Chipulina‘s pictures tend to be based on natural forms, in oil with glazes for depth, but she also works in collage, prints, photographs, and often using recycled materials. Inspiration comes from the surrounding landscape and from her travels.

Iona Molleson‘s plein air paintings reveal her delight in observation of light, colour and pattern in the landscape through fresh spontaneous brushmarks. She studied Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art and won 2022’s Duchess of Hamilton Award.

Lyndsay Fergus‘ love of printmaking started in Camberwell Art school, London in the 80’s. Practising printmaking, casting and papermaking, she sells her work widely, teaching workshops and has exhibited in London, Paris, Japan, Germany and New York.

Fee Scroggie, ‘Empress’, oil and marble dust on board

East Lothian-based, Fee Scroggie draws from European myth cycles, heathen gods and old ways, creating paintings, sculpture, collage and printmaking that explore the mysterious and unseen parts of reality, inspired by the lore surrounding the two great Laws that rise from the landscape.

A landscape architect by day, Emily Peel-Yates rediscovered her passion for painting during lockdown, and works mainly in chalk pastel, aiming to capture her own love and understanding of the outdoors, focusing on drama within the seasons and twilight.
