ob•serve – colours of an island

2 July - 31 August


The work in this exhibition is rooted in a study of the landscape, colours and wildlife of Skokholm Island, off the Pembrokeshire coast, which Linda Norris undertook as Artist in Residence on the island over six months in 2015.

The exhibition shows the process the artist explored in order to extend her practice and develop a new body of work. In this work she is examining observation as the root of scientific and artistic enquiry and is adopting scientific methodologies to collect and analyse colour in the landscape. The artist gratefully acknowledges the support of Arts Council of Wales in funding this project.
