Annette M. Purdie: Lost in Nature

Wednesday 31st May 2017 – Saturday 29th July 2017

The influence of the natural world constantly drives the direction of the work of Annette M. Purdie. Areas of Scotland and Yorkshire, where the artist previously lived, and memories from travel elsewhere in the world, evoke an abundance of inspiration. Adding a certain amount of imagination also provides further scope for interpretation of the above in sometimes a more impressionistic, rather than figurative way.
