Superfly: my new exhibition

I’m excited to reveal details of my new summer exhibition, Superfly, which is on at Logie Steading from June 30 – July 8.

As you know, I’ve been working on loads of new paintings, trying to capture the magic of fishing that you don’t see because it’s underwater. These new works feature fishing flies that have just been cast across the loch. I’ve been striving to portray the way the light goes through the water. It’s all about showing how the bubbles and ripples distort the reflective film of the water.

I’ve also been inspired by the big fancy camera they used on the BBC’s Blue Planet 2 and I’ve tried to show what’s above and below the surface. Painting in this way allows me to add greater context to the underwater pictures.

The exhibition will be in the Long Room at Logie Steading, near Forres. The Long Room is between the whisky shop and farm shop, right next to the car park so you can’t miss it!

And you’re invited to the launch night on June 30, from 6-8pm, when you can enjoy your art with a wee glass of something and I’ll be around to chat about the paintings (or fishing!)

Loch Horizons

Been having lots of fun trying something new. My most recent work is based on some of my favourite local lochs and takes inspiration from railway posters from back in the day.

It’s all about refining the scene to its essential shapes. I’ve been wanting to paint pictures like this since buying Lemon Jelly’s album, Lost Horizons. The cover artwork by Fred Deakin is one of my favourite pictures because of the simple shapes and strong colours.

Still got more lochs to get through so keep checking back.
