EXHIBITION: Siobhan O’Hehir
Siobhan O’ Hehir
Taking inspiration from the natural world and, in particular the Borders and Northumberland landscape, Siobhan’s work features wide open spaces, big skies and (of course) weather. She works mainly in oils and sometimes use additional materials such as bees wax and soil to create texture.
She is intrigued by the notion that a small stroke of paint on a canvas can evoke a sense of a real landscape in terms of scale and mood and this keeps bringing her back to the subject of landscape time and time again….to the play between abstraction and figuration.
Siobhan’s base is a studio in the small village of Ancrum, near Jedburgh though she is often out and about armed with paints or a camera.
The Exhibition runs from 24 August to 22 September.
