Since 2018, Ewan McClure has been working as artist in residence at E. A. Hornel’s studio in Kirkcudbright. During this residency his work in the studio has informed his still lifes and informal arrangements. He has concentrated on the effect of light and shadow, and complex compositions viewed through angled mirrors, playing with ideas of depth and illusion. The surrounding townscape and countryside of Kirkcudbright have also been explored. Inside and Out reveals a new chapter in the artistic history of Kirkcudbright with this beguiling and original body of new work.
