Closer to Home | January 2021
We are delighted to open 2021 with a major exhibition of new work by artist Philip Braham. In this new collection of paintings and photographs he explores the landscape around his new home and studio in the marches between Highland and Lowland: ancient disputed lands, rich in human history: agricultural, religious and violent. The thin mantle of the earth bears witness to the human struggle, the beautiful indifference of the passing seasons dictating the rhythms of farming, social life, warfare and death.
Philip Braham has exhibited with The Scottish Gallery since 1984 and Closer to Home presents his sixth solo exhibition with The Gallery. We are delighted to showcase this haunting body of work from an artist deserving of particular contemplation.
Philip filmed some beautiful films of his Perthshire home landscape, which feature in his work throughout the exhibition.
