Painting and print exhibition showing the work of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham

About

As a founding member of the St Ives group, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham RSA RSW CBE is acclaimed as a foremost British Modernist. Her images derive from acute observations of natural forms and the places she visited, pared to the bare essentials. Bohun Gallery’s major show focusses on her strong bond with the sea and coastlines.  Barns-Graham split her time between her studio in St Ives and a family home in St Andrew’s, Fife. The beaches, north and south, look out over very different seas (eastwards to the North Sea and westwards to the North Atlantic respectively) and have their own characteristics; their colour, shapes, nuances and movements. These stark environments provided the artist with limitless inspiration and, as this carefully curated show illustrates, formed a catalyst for one of the most distinguished artists of the late 20th Century.
