Sea Marks – An exhibition by Rhona Taylor
Patriothall Gallery, Edinburgh
Running from May 6 – 14
Preview May 5, 6 – 8pm
Sea Marks is an exhibition of new work by Rhona Taylor based on a two-month residency in a remote town on the north coast of Iceland. The work — painting, printmaking, photography and mixed-media installation — looks at how the community’s isolated location has shaped its collective identity. It focuses mainly on the area’s diminished fishing industry, using local folklore along with digital navigation technology to create a series of visual maps. Rhona Taylor is a visual artist based in Edinburgh, with a studio in Leith. Her recent residencies include Nes Artist’s Residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland, and Cove Park in Argyll.
