Southern Images

ILLONA MORRICE has been exhibiting at Tolquhon for many years and it is always fascinating to see what emerges from her studio. No two pieces are the same and her work is constantly evolving, both in theme and in style.

Illona grew up in Denmark but Scotland has been her home for more than 30 years. A keen sea kayaker and climber, she is at home in the natural world and beautifully expresses her response to her surroundings. This exhibition reflects Illona’s impressions of South Georgia and Patagonia in what has become her pared down style.

Over the years I have realised I can say much more with less, so my sculptures have become more simplified, but I hope more powerful.

Sea and Shore

Artists have always been drawn to sea and shore, to the challenges of painting a powerful subject, changing with the wind and the tides, the weather and the seasons. Seascapes and shorelines have especially attracted Scottish artists.

This exhibition is by a select group of artists whose work is inspired by the sea.

Artists taking part include Sarah Carrington, Jackie Gardiner, Gillian Goodheir, D.E.Johnston, Duncan MacLeod RSW, James Orr, Patricia Sadler and Marion Thomson.
