Exhibition by Sheena Wilkie|
MEMORIES OF A STIRLING CHILDHOOD UNBUCKLED
The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum is showing a
selection of paintings by artist Sheena Wilkie who, though
born and grew up in Stirling, now lives in Worthing in the
south of England.
The exhibition includes several works which are a response to her early experiences such as her fear as a child of using the 'Sma' Vennel' as a shortcut and the time her younger sister got her head stuck in the railings of the Holy Trinity Episcopal School, which they both attended.
Sheena, although primarily a figure painter, has included a number of landscape studies. She states that these are 'uncomplicated, immediate responses to the colour and splendour' that she observes in Scotland and that no other place evokes such a 'passionate response.' This is best seen in her depiction of 'The Ochil Hills', a painting about colour which uses expressive paint to capture the landscape and the feeling it gives her.
Many other expressions of identity and a strong sense of place can be
found in all her works.
Works are for sale with prices starting at £150.00.
