Eva Ullrich and Allan Macdonald go in search of remote locations to experience the landscape before them. They explore untouched and untamed places looking at the qualities of light and the special characteristics of place.
High mountains, sweeping vistas and wild shores excite and pathless woods discovering the delights of snow-white twisted birches and the withered bracken underfoot entice. Their painting signatures are unique and polar opposite yet they both speak of the wilder places of Scotland.
Eva’s paintings convey an almost transcendental feeling of lightness and air; form is cleverly conveyed through delicate edges and tone.
Allan ventures to isolated places, often sketching in situ, he draws inspiration from the power of nature. His expressive use of paint captures the energy, rhythms and textures of the landscape and is truly a master of his craft.
Experience is at the source of this exhibition, both for the artist and the viewer. We invite you to come and join us at Tatha to interact with these story filled paintings and discover the lost and magical places they depict.
