The North Wind
James Morrison is wholeheartedly engaged as a landscape painter but sees no constraint in this choice; his work is thematically rich, poetic and lyrical, and for many has added to our understanding of the Scottish landscape. His main working areas are the ancient farmland around his home in Angus, the Mearns of Grassic Gibbon’s ‘Sunset Song’ and, in complete contrast, the rugged wildness of the west coast at Assynt. This long awaited exhibition represents the culmination of three years work, bringing new subjects and some adaption of his studio practice, including work made directly in front of the landscape.
