Tràigh Bheasdaire I painting

Inter – Tidal | Eadar – Thràghadh

Sheenagh Patience

Virtual Cafe Exhibition

“It is a place of constant change and new discoveries. Across the flat space between the high and low tidal zone the sea deposits its gifts to be found and claimed, then takes back what is unwanted. With each new tide comes something new, something previously unseen.

The surface of a painting is also like an inter-tidal zone where repetition, rhythm and form can trigger fresh ideas and meaning, where improvisation and the smallest of variables in composition echo the complexity of nature.

Each day I walk along Tràigh Bheasdaire, the east beach on the Isle of Berneray. It is a place to observe and imagine and sometimes to reconnect with earlier themes. There is a timeless quality to shells recently washed up on Berneray and ancient fossils found on other Hebridean islands.

The everchanging weather and mood of the sea adds to the visual stimuli.”
