The Artist - Shirley Kirkcaldy SWAc
Shirley Kirkcaldy is a contemporary landscape artist whose work explores the thin edge between direct observation and emotional response. Sketches made on location provide a critical resource for recapturing a sense of place and, using a variety of tools, she lays down paint in a loose, expressive style whilst incorporating texture and mark-making. With a fascination for colour, light and shade, final images worked in oil or mixed media are seeking something beyond the obvious, whereby what lies underneath is as important as what can be seen on the surface, much like the landscape itself. Shirley’s work is held in private collections in UK, USA, Europe and New Zealand.
