“Looking at [Frances Walker’s] work is like an invitation to go on a voyage…”
– Griffin Co, A Meditation on the Sublime

Using Frances Walker’s exhibitions at Peacock Visual Arts and the Aberdeen Art Gallery as starting point and inspiration, this talking tour will meander through the certainties and mysteries of ‘where we belong’ in both traditional and contemporary art, and look at finding links and connections between painting and more ‘performative’ and contemporary artworks.

It will involve some light walking, some sitting, refreshments, blankets, chat and discussion, a small amount of bravery and a love of the outdoors. It will take approximately 2 hours and is free of charge. Weather Permitting.

Frances says her inspiration for her paintings from landscapes that have a ‘silent, sterile, naebody-about feel to it’ and we will explore this tradition of landscape painting, as well as other types of projects that have similar inspirations, from traditional to more contemporary genres.
