The Watermill Gallery in Aberfeldy is featuring an exhibition of the work of painter Julianne Barclay – her first solo show, following a long history of group exhibitions in Scotland and London. Julianne won Leith School of Art’s 2012 prize for drawing, and in addition to her drawn work will be showing her emotive abstract works. The show comprises a wide variety, from large abstract oil paintings up to nearly 2.5 x 1.5m, to smaller oils approx. 25cm square, and large ink drawings of Scotland’s east coast.

Julianne says, ‘The title is ‘Essence’ as in my work I am trying to capture the truth about an experience or memory. I work from memory and often begin from the subconscious, just allowing that to come through the mark making. The watermill purchased a large drawing of mine a few years ago, which is in their bookshop, something else for the exhibition visitor to see. It is also big, over 2 metres.’

Julianne’s website explains further.

The Gallery is also hosting its exhibition Wild, until 20th September.
