Documenting various scenes around Edinburgh, Ruth Nicol: From the Capital at Detail Framing & Gallery is an exploration of location and architecture includes residential, historical, commercial, natural, nautical and industrial landscapes to explain life in the capital, particularly the docklands of the Port of Leith.

Working in varying scale, from very large to very small, Nicol’s principal thread throughout this collection of drawings and paintings is the use of colour and energetic, expressive mark-making with the intention of capturing the specific light this northern city enjoys through a period of dramatic change. All the locations depicted are important to the artist and represent either daily views or personally significant vistas.
