 The Colour of Life

This exhibition is a celebration of Colour. One of the most important elements of Karen's work, it has the ability to uplift, to make you smile, cry and be profound. Without it we would have extremely dull lives. So enjoy this fascinating take on the Colour of Life.

Norrie has been woodturning since retiring as an engineering draughtsman 12 years ago and considers woodturning to be a hobby. This is Norrie’s first formal joint exhibition although he has been exhibiting over the years at various Open Studios across Scotland. Norrie works, in both oil and polish finishes, using mainly Scottish native hardwoods.’ I try to retain, where possible, some of the beautiful original features which occur naturally in most woods’.

 Tues 3 -Sun 8 December 2013

Karen has worked as an artist for nearly 30 years and this, her second exhibition this year at Gladstone’s Land, brings together a range of work which studies various aspects of trees, their lives and their habits. The multi-faceted art skills she uses on a daily basis through teaching, commissions and personal projects show simply how colour, pattern, texture, light and shade can be used to illustrate the natural world. Karen is capable of seeing and therefore translating the minutest detail in a wide variety of subject matter, be lt realist or abstract, showing that her observational skills can surprise, intrigue, even question what we think we can see ourselves.
