Ghostlands: Robbie Bushe / Kate Downie / Ronald Ploughman

26 August - 24 September 2016

Each of us finds reason to stop, stare and linger. Our visual world can be so familiar we look right through it, letting our gaze flicker between the external and internal. The immediate visual topography becomes overlaid with intimate reflections, occurrences and notions; transient, ghostly, and often eluding depiction. ‘Ghostlands’ examines the work of three artists who share a preoccupation to draw and paint a world which reveal their distinct visual meanderings between observed and imagined places. Each is very much connected to the North East Scotland legacy of lyrical narratives with its stark unromantic imagery and each demonstrates a commitment to imaginative depiction through dexterous and searching drawing.
