Anna King: Margins
An exhibition of new paintings exploring the margins of landscape; highlighting King’s preoccupation with outskirts, edges and boundaries, and the incidental marks we make on our land.
Although influenced by the constantly shifting landscape of every day, King also sees the memory of a place saturate into her work months or years later; the places she visits settling into her subconscious.
Working in oil on paper pasted onto board King draws into the wet paint with pencil, resulting in deconstructed, sketch-like finished pieces; the smooth surface, fragility and fluidity of the mark making on paper echoing the temporary and peripheral nature of the places she paints.
This show will include paintings inspired by her residency trip to Iceland in 2016.
Born in Shetland in 1984, Anna King graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee in 2005 and now lives and works in the Scottish Borders. King won the inaugural Jolomo Lloyds TSB Landscape Award and the Anna Miller Scholarship in 2007. She exhibits widely throughout the UK.
