Scottish landscape artist Helen Glassford is showing a solo exhibition at a fine art gallery in Acharacle.
Resipole Studios is showcasing Everything In-Between in its main gallery until Friday July 9.
From Helen’s base on the east coast of Scotland, she regularly travels to some of the most remote locations in the UK to immerse herself in the rugged landscape and unpredictable weather patterns these northerly regions offer.
Full sensory experiences, rather than visual perceptions alone, are the tools which she draws on for her work to present expressive abstract landscape paintings hinting at horizon, sea, sky and land, blurring the lines of where each of these elements begins and ends.
These evocative elements are exactly what first drew gallery director Andrew Sinclair to Helen’s work and led him to suggest the exhibition at Resipole Studios.
The gallery’s remote location on the west coast of Scotland felt like the ideal place to showcase Helen’s paintings ‘which so eloquently capture the ever-changing mood, landscape and weather of the wilder regions of Scotland,’ said Mr Sinclair.
The gallery’s opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 11am until 6pm, or visit the website at resipolestudios.co.uk
