Tide Line05 Jul 2017 - 29 Jul 2017
Grace Girvan, originally from Orkney and former graduate from Edinburgh College of Art, presents her second solo exhibition at The Scottish Gallery – Tide Line. She currently works from her studio in Fife overlooking the Firth of Forth. It is however, the unique landscape of the Orkney Islands which is the main inspiration behind her work. She enjoys beachcombing and uses the objects that she unearths on her expeditions in her work, combining found objects with precious metal and enamel. Her work conveys the sun bleached colours of the sea and shore and is underpinned by a restrained colour palette of soft greys, blues, greens and browns.
