A Natural Selection – new watercolours April 22 2015
I'm pleased to be exhibiting a series of 18 new watercolours at The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh from 1st to 30th May 2015.
Christina Jansen, director of The Scottish Gallery, explains:
"We are delighted to present Angie Lewin’s first solo exhibition with The Scottish Gallery. She is best known as a designer and printmaker whose sensitive patterns and motifs are inspired by the English Arts and Crafts movement and the work of Bawden and Ravilious. She divides her life between homes in Edinburgh and Speyside and this geographic diversity is reflected in her plant observations and interweaving of the natural and domestic worlds.
She walks, looks and draws; she collects and assembles and her studio is full of reference material, beautiful in itself witnessing a life lived in art and nature. Her chosen medium for this exhibition is watercolour, that most sensitive and difficult medium and her virtuosity is complete but should be no surprise in the context of her rigorous apprenticeship. The playful title for this show hints at her obsessive observing, refined through the artist’s editorial eye to make order out of chaos."
All of the watercolours are available to purchase prior to the exhibition opening. Please contact The Scottish Gallery for further details.
The exhibition runs from 1st to 30th May 2015 at The Scottish Gallery, 16 Dundas Street, Edinburgh EH3 6HZ.
