The latest news from The Scottish Art Scene
In “Seeing Beyond the Immediate”, artist Patricia Cain curates both her own work and that of Scottish abstract artist Wilhelmina Barns-Graham with fifteen pieces and a couple of by William Gaer. The aim is to create an installation that encourages visitors to engage with the creative process of artists who make both representational and abstract artworks. It offers an insight into how art emerges in the creative process. Patricia is a leading contemporary British visual artist and winner of the Threadneedle and Aspect prizes. This is the first time that these pieces will be seen by the public. The exhibition is of particular interest as Patricia was originally regarded very much as an artist of the urban realm but following her move to rural Dumfries and Galloway three years ago, she has developed a fascination with organic forms.
