‘Up on the Mountain & Down by the River’ | Felicity Bristow & Susie Leiper

30 June 2018 – 20 July 2018

Upright Gallery, Edinburgh

‘Susie loves being up on the mountain. Felicity enjoys walking down by the river. Both artists share a fascination with absorbent papers, which react randomly to the inks applied to them, echoing the uncontrollable changing faces of the land and the water. Felicity‚Äôs inks are drawn upwards, splitting into a blaze of brilliant hues, while for Susie, varying dilutions of Chinese inks struggle against resists and create extraordinary, unrepeatable marks. As well as making wall works, both Felicity and Susie are fascinated by the book form and distil some of their work in this format.’

Ian Farmer, Owner & Curator
