CATHERINE MCEACHERN AND SCOTT FORREST
10 FEBRUARY – 7 MARCH
Scott’s practice is grounded in intuitive mark-making, using call and response to create shape, line and colour in paint and mixed media. He creates large-scale open-ended paintings, building layers and creating tension between what is seen and what remains hidden beneath the surface.
Catherine works in a large scale, painting acrylic on canvas. Her work is abstract and evocative of dream landscapes.
“My work is largely inspired by the ocean, beaches and landscapes. Having grown up in a rural village on a Scottish island, I’ve always been drawn to natural forms, and see the beauty in their differences.”
19 JANUARY – 7 FEBRUARY
Various works, Sophia Grindlay
Sophie is an artist, designer & people watcher. She explores humanity’s compulsion to accumulate material using vivid colours, intriguing patterns & textures. She investigates ways to create work from repurposing material and navigating her practice responsibly.
