Now extended to 6th May: Frames Gallery in Perth is hosting its second solo exhibition by Liz Myhill RSW. While her first explored other countries as well as this, this time the focus is entirely on Scotland. The word Stravaig means to roam or wander without aim, which Liz describes thus: ‘To stravaig is, for me, an unbounded freedom, it is where I feel most at home and content. It may only be as far as the end of the croft on Skye, where I roamed as a child; or it may be high into the mountains, along lonely coastlines or among scattered islands and skerries. These places observed in solitude exert a powerful hold, a desire to understand them more fully by bearing witness to their character as it undergoes subtle shifts through the hours, days, weeks, months and years’.

Many of Liz’s works are completed in a single burst of energy on location, and are subject to changes in the weather conditions, and although she can find this challenging at times, she says, ‘…it is this unpredictability that I find so exciting – the raw power of the elements and their ability to shape the work. There is an urgency to being out in these conditions, a complete absorption in the moment. It is this absorption, this entanglement with nature that I seek out.’

There are forty works in this exhibition, all of which can be purchased from the Gallery’s website. The Gallery supports the Own Art finance scheme, which makes purchasing artworks more affordable through payment by instalments.
