New Jolomo Works arrival at Beauly Gallery
I am pleased to inform you that we have just taken delivery of several new Jolomo works, these highly collectable works of art are available to view at Beauly Gallery from today.
John Lowrie Morrison has painted the west coast of Scotland since the early 1960's. He paints the light of the west, the light that bathes the Inner and Outer Hebrides.
He utilises strong colour to express that light and sees his paintings, not in the traditional form of light and dark, but in darkness versus colour, which reflects what his paintings are all about: an allegorical description of the human spirit.
John hails from the Outer Hebrides - Kyles, Isle of Harris, were his extended family still live and work. Frequent childhood visits to family on Skye gave him a love of the croft.
Morrison records the human imprint on Argyll and the Isles, study his works for: the pole next to the croft carrying power or phone lines, the gate from the croft to shore or runrigs, the ladder constantly leaning against the croft wall - signifying the constant struggle against water and wind, and, of course, the peat stack - becoming rarer and rarer as island familes rely less on peat.
Four new works, oil on canvas available from 24th June 2011:
Harvest Moon, Isle of Gigha
Evening Light, Ben More, Mull
Red Roof, Isle of Barra
Autumn Light, Ormsary, Knapdale
