JOIN ME AT INCEPTION
I am thrilled to be involved with not only the first exhibition at Dalkieth Palace but the first time this beautiful building will be seen by the public. We artists are fortunate enough to be right there at the beginning.
Here we will be, as the first artists of many to come, asked to show what Edinburgh and Scotland has to offer in the contemporary art scene. It is a chance to showcase the hours we spend in our studios and the years we have spent learning our skills. It is the culmination of rumination and errors and trials and solitude.
Meet Inception. An exciting new art sales exhibition launching this September, showcasing the work of handpicked British artists. In a world adapting to Covid-19, Inception has been created to allow artists, who have endured extremely tough times over these past 20 months, to collaboratively present their collections to the public. Artists’ collections will be shown in ‘found spaces’ within the wonderful Dalkeith Palace.
An impressive roll call of respected artists, sculptors and painters have already signed up to present their work. Pop onto the event page for a full list of exhibitors.
The show is open from 10am – 5pm on 10th-12th September. Entrance tickets cost £2.50 and are now on sale ~ https://www.dalkeithcountrypark.co.uk/events/inception-art-show/
Inner Dialogue was conceived and executed throughout the recent events that has separated artists from so much of their inspirations.
The collection begins at a point of frustration – the crimson hues with accentuated light burns brightly as the mind ‘fires on all cylinders’, unable to embrace the order and process that often accompanies my designs. There is no ease visually or emotionally, it is building to a point of being overwhelmed.
The crimson anger leads to the dark blue-grey nadir, it is not calming but reflects the despair of a mind at the bottom of a vortex of repeating, never-ending internal conversations like a circular argument with the self that forms an intellectual and emotional perimeter.
This results in an explosion of colour, effectively the mind rebelling against the prison of grey, the red and white explosion captures the mind shouting ‘no’. This moment is followed by pause, and in that moment, the formation of the ‘answer’ to the inner dialogue is found.
The collection returns to the blue palette, but this time there is calmness, stillness, recovery and order. From this order, colour will return, but now it is measured; as the mind acknowledges that it has answers and from these answers a new perspective emerges.
