Victoria Crowe





I had the good fortune to have the artist Victoria Crowe as a tutor for one of my years as a student at ECA. Because of this I have always loved following her art through exhibitions in Edinburgh and hearing of her through friends.
These images are part of a series of works called 'Winter Sequence' examining the changing light in the winter from snowstorm to moonlight through paint, monoprint, ink, collage and drawings. I absolutely adore Victoria's depiction of the bare winter branches and that wonderful dawn light on the top image is perfection.
Victoria Crowe is also involved with a large scale tapestry commission that is being made at the Dovecot studios in Edinburgh, to be completed in 2016.
