Both Scottish artists, painter Eric Cruikshank and sculptor Ian Kane are continuing a visual conversation on their recent works.

About

Both artists are influenced in their work by the Scottish landscape, light and colours. 

Ian Kane
The artist is a collector; fragments of seeing, ideas, observations, experience, accumulated knowledge eventually come together to form a visual reality.

The making of every piece is a re-learning, the bringing together of the conscious and the unconscious. Memory does not help here as the present (ness) of the work generates its own immediate problems to be resolved.

Ian's work tends to be contemplative in nature as a result of living in the landscape of the Scottish Highlands. This influence is in the mix giving the work a poetic quality.

Eric Cruikshank
Taking landscape as an initial starting point, Eric's paintings are not about literal presentation; instead the focus is on the emotive qualities of place. Using an objective palette tied to the Scottish landscape, colour acts as a vehicle to reveal the picture planes underlying points of reference. With the structure, design, and colour harmony being grounded in the everyday, the viewer is encouraged to readdress notions of their surroundings, where the familiar is opened up and made full of possibility.
