Colours, Textures and Wonder: The Allure of Scottish Seascapes

About Colours, Textures and Wonder: The Allure of Scottish Seascapes

Passionate about the Scottish coastline, Anne has focused on native seascapes for her Solo Show which features nearly 40 original paintings.

She visits and immerses herself in the seascape; then works in her studio, building the painting in carefully observed layers. This method takes time and consideration, capturing the sublime beauty of the scene through intense colour and the careful abstraction of form, light and weather.

The result is a beautiful, jewel-like portrayal of the scene, a unity of painting and experience. The effect is reminiscent of Mondrian’s seascapes of the early 1900s in the use of a universal pictorial language representing the dynamic, evolutionary forces that govern nature and human experience.

There is contrast and unease - where sky meets land, light meets dark, the sun is overcast by clouds and shadow. The depth and distance achieved by Anne in her compositions show the elusive quality of the coastlines, demonstrating that beauty is often out of reach and unattainable.

We feel the desolate beauty, vast skies and expansive sandscapes of the East Lothian coastline, where shimmers of sun break through a threatening sky. The ethereal quality of the Islands of Barra and Harris, with saturated colours and a cool, almost dazzling brightness.

She conveys the exceptional quality of light and wild beauty, with a compelling elegance and expertly achieved simplicity.
