MAIRI TIMONEY: RECOLLECT

3 - 25 May 2019

The Fine Art Society in Edinburgh presents Recollect, an exhibition of mixed media works on board by Mairi TimoneyThe ten works, incorporating painting and collage, translate the artist’s memories into fragmented geometric patterns and evocative palettes. Timoney employs juxtapositions of surface, space, pattern and colour to recreate the transience of recollections and fleeting experiences.

“The exhibition is a collection of paintings which stem from a memory of a place. I use the memory as a starting point which I build upon to recreate a landscape or setting. Each piece originates from a different place and time period in my life… The paintings present my version of a certain time and place – a recollection of the way I saw and experienced my environment.”

Timoney studied painting and graphic design at Edinburgh College of Art and at L'École Superieure Des Arts Decoratifs in Strasbourg, France. She is the recipient of the 2017 Edinburgh Visual Artists Award, the Edinburgh University Barnson Bequest Award, and has exhibited at Whitechapel Gallery in London, The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and The Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh. In 2016 and 2017 Timoney was Artist in Residence at Edinburgh College of Art, and is currently Artist in Residence at George Watson’s College.
