Horizon - New paintings by Anna Somerville
Exhibition Opens 5th August 2-4pm
Continues until 30th August
A true colourist, Somerville paints intuitively in mixed media and oil to imagine atmospheric horizons. These expressive paintings deliver expansive compositions of abstracted light and form.
Anna Somerville graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2000 and works from her studio at Summerhall in Edinburgh.
Somerville has been awarded the prestigious Elizabeth Blackadder & John Houston Travel Award (2000) and Anne Redpath Award for painting (2003).
This exhibition brings together a selection of recent paintings. The medium of paint along with a visceral approach to painting is at the heart of Somerville’s work, with each work emerging from an intuitive application of oil paint, raw pigment and mixed media.
These works conjure up bold, atmospheric scapes that draw you into light filled spaces and invite you to look closer between the layers of paint.
