Christine McArthur | The Diary Series
A catalogue to accompany Christine McArthur's exhibition, The Diary Series.
McArthur inhabits an immersive, creative world. The Diary Series was conceived over two years ago, created in sketchbooks and diaries in response to The Gallery’s invitation, as a way to develop ideas and imagery from which finished works would emerge. These diaries capture moments from places she has visited, or a response to a poem. The passing seasons are observed and her domestic surroundings and familiar objects emerge in her imagery. She works in oil, oil pastel, acrylic, watercolour, pen and ink and collage so that layers of colour and texture are built up to create her artwork.
