Ingleby Gallery in Edinburgh is presenting an exhibition of new paintings by Glasgow-based artist Lorna Robertson. Her first solo show at the gallery, it showcases the remarkable range and energy in her work, described as gestural and expressive, yet finely-wrought. Lorna describes these densely-coloured images as ‘sitting somewhere between abstraction and figuration, a tangled game of hide- and-seek that plays with the visibility and readability of an image. I often paint to find out what to paint, creating harmonies and tensions through placement of shape, specificity of colour – the process itself becoming an act of revealing’.

As ever, the Gallery space itself, with its transformative natural light, enhances the visitor’s experience; and it has published a book on Lorna’s work, with texts by Hettie Judah and Mikey Cuddihy, to tie-in with this year’s Edinburgh Art Festival.
