The artist will visit Uist on Friday 11 March and will present a talk on his practice at Taigh Chearsabhagh in the evening at 7pm. The talk is free and everybody is welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
The American artist Matthew Rangel is presenting an exhibition of his drawings and fine art graphic works in Gallery 2 at Taigh Chearsabhagh. Rangel is from the San Joaquin Valley of California, back-dropped by the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. A passionate mountaineer and hill walker, his work captures his experience of wilderness through a complex layering of landscape image production. Framed by the graphically encoded language of maps, Rangel’s work is generated primarily using lithography along with a variety of other traditional and digital printmaking methods to incorporate observation-based drawing, photography, and historic inquiry, with topographic field research. Matthew will travel to Scotland to present a talk on his practice at Taigh Chearsabhagh and to walk in the Uist hills and the Cuillins with potential for further work inspired by those experiences.
