"Sarah Carrington: Iona – Time and Tide"
2002-10-31 until 2002-11-27
Catto Contemporary
London, , UK United Kingdom

Catto Contemporary is proud to present a solo show of Edinburgh born Sarah Carrington. Having graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a sell-out degree show in 1999, Sarah has become a well sought after young Scottish artist. Sarah’s work focuses on the Scottish coastline, a passion for which she has had since her childhood family holidays, spent on the west coast and sailing around the Hebrides.

Her canvases are often large in scale (up to 6 x 12 feet), colourful yet at the same time subtle. Her work captures the various moods of both the sea and sky at different times of the year, and in varying weather conditions. Often the viewer is overwhelmed by their vastness – depth and distance are constant features in her work.

Her paintings are mainly executed in the studio from either photographs or sketches made while at the beach. These include both east and west coast areas, like Gullane, North Berwick, Longniddry, Catterline (Aberdeenshire), Ardnamurchan and Ullapool.

She uses oil, varnish and household emulsions to create the various surfaces and textures found by the sea and uses string and even sand to create a physicality of the environment.

In this new series of work, Sarah has focused the collection around the Isle of Iona and it’s incredible landscapes. Areas include Eilean Annraidh Island, The Bay at the Back of the Ocean, Marta Bay and Sligineach. We are very grateful for the kind support of Visit Scotland and the National Trust in the creation of this remarkable exhibition.
