Dreaming the Land at the Sidney Nolan Trust
Wed 10 May 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
Edinburgh trained painter printmaker Fiona McIntyre recently finished a six month residency at the Sidney Nolan Trust and a solo exhibition at The Rodd called Dreaming The Land.
Fiona will talk about her residency and the inspiration behind this unique body of work which includes Sidney Nolan’s paintings, the bleak landscape of borderland Wales and England, and Nolan’s fascinating collection of objects and books. Fiona is particularly interested in the idea of wilderness and anamorphic forms within nature which express ideas about mortality and the mass extinction of species.
Fiona McIntyre was born in Kenya and brought up in Ireland and England. She trained in Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art followed by an MA in Barcelona at Winchester School of Art studios. Fiona has exhibited in more than 40 exhibitions in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Gibraltar and France. Her work is in public and private collections including Malmo Allmanna Sjukhuset and Ashmolean Museum Oxford. Fiona is represented by www.sandrahiggins.art
