Highlands & Islands

Mairi Clark’s solo show hosted by John Adams Fine Art at the Ebury Galleries

Tuesday 13th March– Tuesday 27th March 2007

John Adams Fine Art at the Ebury Galleries is hosting, ‘Highlands & Islands’, their first solo exhibition of works by the noted Scottish expressionist artist, Mairi Clark, which runs from Tuesday 13th March until Tuesday 27th March. This exhibition offers a selection of 30 contemporary landscapes in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

This new series of evocative paintings depicts very different images of Scotland offering new collectors an opportunity to invest in a talented and popular artist, whose work is widely held in both private and corporate collections in England and Scotland.

This is Scotland at its most intriguing, with a hint of menace, emphasised by colour, light and atmosphere. The artist has always had an affinity with the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, particularly the Scottish coastline near East Neuk, and these abstract landscapes illustrate the lure of the Scottish sea and landscape for the artist.

Mairi Clark’s broad brushwork is influenced by such artists as William Turner, Van Gogh and Joan Eardly. Her style owes much to abstract expressionism when she scratches on the surfaces of the work to complement the rich textured effects achieved with brilliant hues of the oils used.

John Adams, Director of the Ebury Galleries, commented: ‘We are delighted to welcome Mairi Clark to the Ebury Galleries with her new exhibition; offering our established and new collectors an opportunity to choose from Mairi’s powerful new show.’

Mairi Clark on her latest work, said: ‘’It is very important to me to capture a free and energetic mood in my work, and translate the energy of the landscape I am in onto the canvas.’

John Adams Fine Art, based in the Ebury Galleries, Belgravia, has long been recognised for promoting contemporary artists of note alongside antique works. The gallery was founded in 1990 and is known internationally for its eclectic collection of superb quality art spanning four centuries.
