Naomi McClure’s unusual semi-abstract paintings depict imaginary interiors and spaces based on personal perceptions and experiences. Using oils on shaped mounted panels she constructs a manipulated perspective, exploring colour and light. An interesting aspect is that one piece will lead on to another, so while appearing to be of the same ‘space’, they are an intuitive response to one another, sharing themes and echoes. Her pieces were a contribution to the RSA’s New Contemporaries exhibition in Edinburgh in 2019 and suggest viewing into a collection of rooms, through different doors, hence the exhibition’s title. Naomi graduated in Painting from Gray’s School of Art, in Aberdeen in 2019, and has studied Contemporary Art Practice. Her artist talk can be found on Upright Gallery’s website, alongside talks by other artists – a customary practice at the Gallery.
