Resipole Studios, Argyll: Margaret Uttley and David Knight , Edge of Sight

The paintings and drawings in Edge of Sight at Resipole Studios frame and celebrate the dramatic promontory and vertical cliffs of Gallan Head and the Valtos peninsula, in the Outer Hebrides.  Dominated by the Atlantic Ocean and vast open skies, it is a place of uninterrupted space.  Figurative and abstract, the work engages with scale, synergy and surveillance aspects of this charged environment, while lyrically combining atmospheric elements; weather, sea, sky, movement, colour, landscape, structures, rhythms and surface textures.

The sense of drama and mystery is coloured by its past history as a MOD base, while plans for a Cetus Project to build an astronomical Observatory point to an alternative, intriguing future.
