The light between charts the ever changing skies over Harris and South Uist. Churning, luminescent clouds dwarf empty land and seascapes. Painted last autumn, the glowing machair and heatherclad hillsides inject colour into otherwise dream like scenes. Large scale oils and smaller, quickly worked acrylics on paper make up Victoria Orr Ewing’s second show with The Fine Art Society.
Galloway-born Orr Ewing lived and painted in Andalucia for sixteen years, drawn to its wild landscapes and changing light. On her return to Britain this emphasis remained in her art, emboldened by the dark, complex hues of Scotland’s weather.
