May 6, 2017

Unconformity Blue. £650

 

Ok – we can’t contain are excitement! We are super thrilled to let you guys in on a little secret. We have been plotting away and have booked our first solo show of 2018.

 

Textile Artist Jane Hunter will be creating and showing a brand new body of work with us in June 2018.

Loch of Lowes. Dunkeld. £675 

 

"I’m an artist who looks at landscapes in a different way.  I make maps.  Tactile, textile maps."

 

Jane's work is concerned with a deeper evaluation of our landscapes, creating connections to a place with an understanding of why it looks the way it does.  Jane will blend science and data with threads and cloth to form an aerial overview of physical and human geography.

These works, whilst aesthetically pleasing, hope to encourage people to look at art and landscapes from a different perspective.

 

Closure of the Iapetus. £700 

 

NOT YOUR TYPICAL LANDSCAPE ART

Where Jane's work differs from traditional landscape art is that it allows you to see around corners, beyond mountains or beneath the soil. Her in depth exploration of specific locations are a joy to behold and whilst you may not outwardly recognise these locations, or they appear almost too abstract to capture an exact place in time, you may well have explored them yourself.

 

 Loch Ard. Trossachs. £675

 

A BRIEF HISTORY

The first textile map Jane ever created was the Outer Hebrides, made using Harris Tweed, the piece was picked up by a collector in Glasgow in 2013.  Two months later, while having a coffee in Aberfeldy, a chance meeting with a gallery owner lead to her first solo exhibition.  This was a career defining moment, until then she had struggled with calling herself an artist.  Since then she has gone on to open her own studio, demonstrated her practice at The Scottish Parliament, a second successful solo show in Aberfeldy, had work selected to be part of a joint show at the Barony Centre, exhibited at North West Highlands GeoPark and worked on many commissions from private clients both nationally and internationally.

 

Jane will be producing a body of work based on our very own Argyll’s Secret Coast, exploring our beautiful home through an alternative artistic investigation. We cannot wait to see what she produces, will keep you posted. In the meantime we have examples of Jane's previous work for you to get to know in the gallery.
