Kate Downie | Between Seasons
A catalogue to accompany Kate Downie's June 2021 exhibition, Between Seasons
We are thrilled to welcome Kate Downie back for her seventh solo exhibition with The Scottish Gallery. Between Seasons is an exhibition of international standing, reflecting the extraordinary times in which we live. A series of ten tree paintings form the heart of this exhibition. Each painting can be viewed through 180 degrees, with bottom and top image transected by a central horizon line, forming a mirror-like reflection. The trees, which Downie has captured at six-month intervals, move forward and backwards in time, existing in a continual state of transition. Each work is a journey without a beginning or end, a cycle of life, death, and regeneration within which we all play a part.
