Perth Art Gallery and Museum, Oct 2018 - Mar 2019
An exclusive exhibition of new and contemporary works of art by up and coming artist Natasha Todd is set to be unveiled at Perth Museum and Art Gallery this autumn.
Natasha Todd's Connected Landscapes exhibition has drawn inspiration from Perthshire’s natural environments, with a series of paintings that follow the rivers Tay and Earn, along Allan Water and through the Falls of Dochart. The exhibition will highlight the transient nature of the water on its journey through the Scottish landscape, focusing on the weightless compositions and the fragility of the abstract shapes, as we see Perthshire through a new and vibrant interpretation.
Miriam Mallalieu, Exhibition Officer at Perth Museum and Art Gallery said:
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to host the talented award-winning artist, Natasha Todd, at Perth Museum & Art Gallery, displaying for the first time an ambitious series of new paintings based on the landscape of Perthshire”.
Running from 4th October 2018 - 2nd March 2019, Connected Landscapes is the latest exhibition at Perth Museum & Art Gallery to focus on a modern contemporary style after the hugely successful Tate, Artist Rooms featuring Louise Bourgeois exhibition in 2017.
“I am delighted to have been asked to create this body of work based on my personal connections to some of my favourite landscapes and waterscapes in Perthshire.
I have been inspired by the impressionistic colour palette and tones of these iconic scenes in different seasons, where familiar places are transformed into abstract pieces but remain recognisable.
These large-scale paintings reflect the lasting impact of the dramatic forms that impress now as much as they ever did.”
