Peacock Visual Arts are proud to announce the release of ‘Western Shorelines’, a suite of 3 new prints by Frances Walker. This suite by Frances Walker editioned at Peacock Visual Arts is based on a series of quill pen drawings made by the artist at Achmelvich, Western Sutherland and on Tiree.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in Kirkcaldy in 1930 Frances Walker studied at Edinburgh College of Art and then took up a post as visiting teacher of art for the Hebrides. This experience engendered in her a life-long love of wild and desolate places and since then she has chosen to depict the most remote landscapes, with her compositions usually based on coastal reaches, craggy rocks and deserted beaches.
In her 86th year the remarkable Frances Walker returns to the medium of print and again rewards us richly. We encounter vast spaces made intimate. Walker has spent all her life contemplating the sky, the sea the shore – big subjects from a small land – but never provincial by her hand. Her line is always lyrical, she guides its unique contour through years of honed practice.
If you are interested in the prints, we are at Aberdeen Art Fair, 4-6 September 2015, at the Music Hall, where you can come in and see the prints and have a discussion with our print curator David McCracken. We also have a limited number of FREE INVITES to give away for the Friday night showing, and Saturday/Sunday exhibition days. If you are interested, then please email – email@example.com
