Resipole Studios is delighted to host its second solo show by Ardgour based artist, Anna Raven. Seeking Stillness is a collection of mixed-media artworks, produced during her residencies in Shetland and Eigg in 2016, that look at the relationship between the interior self and its exterior elements.
From years living in the Highlands of Scotland and travelling to these isolated islands, Raven's relationship with the outdoors has become an integral part of her practice."Over the last two years my life has developed a rhythm, something of my own internal weather" She has embarked on a process of submission and explains that she wants "the place to work on me so that I can find a voice to represent what it has to say." Her artist residencies are spent in complete solitude, so she can experience the exterior environment, by looking out and better understand her own interior landscape, by looking in. Seeking Stillness presents a series of works that combine a style of abstraction and representation, visually combining the objective with the subjective and symbolising the binary between the artist and the elements.
