‘Distance Learners’ Moray School of Art exhibiting artists:
Eilidh Stewart: “My work evolves as a self-conscious juxtaposition of flat areas of colour, colours which are dragged, dabbed, dripped, carved back, and layered. All these working methods come together challenging not only myself but also the viewer; it’s a visual journey.”
Michael Kelly: “I have been using fine art mediums to record and apprehend the more sub-conscious, emotional and embodied aspects of my engagement with sacred objects and spaces. Within a materialist and evidence based standpoint, taking the lead from scientific research, I’ve been using this as a way of working through issues around consciousness, mortality, and the human animal”.
Tara Paterson: “My inspirations are based on exploring movement through rhythm and dance. My work is about observing and communicating the many patterns that are created in the performance of Scottish Highland Dances. Through drawing and photography my work reveals the hidden messages of how these dance movements relate to rhythm”.
