exhibitions poster3 The Fabric of the Land        28th August - 4th October 2018

"Fabric of the Land” is a thrilling collection of landscape-inspired work by North West Highland artists Jan Kilpatrick and Mairearad Green.

The raw wilderness of Assynt is a recurring theme in the rich textiles hand-printed and stitched by Jan Kilpatrick. This new work has an increased emphasis on the primitive print marks to be made using indigenous plants and minerals, making for imagery powerfully rooted in her sense of place. Mairearad says: “Jan has created a unique language of the land through her use of experimental textile techniques. I find layer upon layer of meaning in her work, which maps the journey of this land through deep time all the way to the present.”

Mairearad Green is an artist who embraces a range of creative mediums and this collection of paintings marks her emergence as a spirited and accomplished visual artist. Her West Coast heritage calls loud from these energetic, yet sensitive depictions of Coigach, Assynt and beyond. Jan says: “Mairearad’s intimate relationship with this rugged land, its moody seas and the huge windblown skies above makes for work that is full of expression and movement that both quicken and gladden the eye.”

This isn’t the first time that the two have collaborated – some of the songs on Mairearad’s “Summer Isles” album were co-written – and it certainly won’t be the last. 2019 will see them exhibit together again, alongside acclaimed Glasgow mural artist Chelsea Frew, in response to a residency at world-renowned Inverewe Gardens.

“Fabric of the Land” is on show at the Ceilidh Place, Ullapool (café and the Green Room) between the 28th of August and the 4th of October 2018.
