East Lothian gallery Dukes of West Barns is launching its Summer Show with an emphasis on abundant colour, and the return of favourite gallery artists.

Edinburgh-based painter Katy Sawrey, whose work is pictured, is a new addition to the Dukes artist roster. A graduate of London’s Central Saint Martin’s College, she is inspired by the Scottish landscape, building layer upon layer with sharp, clean edges and soft harmonious colours. She says, ‘I love the thought of a piece of work including some of the earth from the place I am painting. I gather small amounts of sand or earth and use them to create texture and marks within my work. I like to think this gives my work an extra level of sentimentality, capturing more than the colours and compositions but even some of the land itself.’
