The Growing Season

Alex Knubley

30 Jun 2022 - 23 Jul 2022

'I continue to try and reflect the light, mood and changing seasons evoked by the inspirational landscape of Scotland. Holidays in the Outer and Inner Hebrides and long walks with my dog and family in and around South Queensferry to local beaches, woodlands, waterways and private estates are what make my heart sing and inspire me to work. Over the past couple of years I have started work on four larger paintings. They begin with layering washes of beeswax mixed paint, selectively excavated back to reveal the hidden colours and chance textures beneath. It is a time consuming, meditative process that cannot be rushed. My work as a horticulturist, including The Scottish Gallery garden and more recently Carlowrie Castle, gives me a perspective on colour and light and grounds me for extended periods in an ephemeral environment.'
