Lizzie Rose

To Mull - Lizzie Rose

Lizzie’s initial response in drawn mark takes place out there in the landscape, but often she retreats to the safety of her studio to contemplate...

''I grew up looking towards Ben Cruachan. Its image and shape are intrinsic to my sense of home and my roots. The outdoors is where I revel - climbing to the tops in all seasons, feeling the grandeur and age, and the land spreading out on all sides. I feel part of the wind and the clouds, the strength and peace in these places.

The journey is important, and the resulting work can encompass more than a single place, reflecting movement and time spent travelling. It is the land, in its might and beauty, its ferocity and calm, that causes me to wonder at the place I call home.

My recent work is pared down. Simple lines: pathways my feet have taken, outlines of mountains, trees passed. Tokens of places seen and travelled to.''

Freda Waldapfel

The Lilies Shadow the Purple
Freda Waldapfel

''I am a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and have been painting full time since 2000 from my studio on the shores of Loch Long.

In these Oil Paintings I am Exploring Colour and in particular the interaction of one colour with another within the painting. My recent work has been described as both ‘Optimistic’ and ‘Poetic.’ I hope you will agree. My starting point is the effect you get at dusk - that luminous quality of light on the garden, particularly in high summer when my garden is bursting with colourful flowers. Known as the Puskinje effect, the garden looks as though it is lit from within. Bonnard called it ‘L’heure bleu.’

I want to capture and evoke the magic of it, ‘the enchanted moments of heightened perception,’ to borrow a phrase from Kenneth Clark.''

Mid-Summer Exhibition at Juno...
Two Contemporary Artists
Joe Smernikki and John Nelson

Joe Smernikki:
A Graduate from Duncan of Jordanstone has a distinctive style that possess colour, shape and line.

The inspiration for Joe’s work comes almost exclusively from the coastal and rural environment around his home town of Montrose.

Joe Smernikki's paintings reflect a dual interest. On one hand they are portrayals of a very distinctive and visually rich landscape with its fishing stations, small boats, farm implements and sheds. Equally the paintings are an exploration of colour, tone, shape and line that are brought together in a carefully balanced composition.

John Nelson:
John Nelson is a Graduate Edinburgh College of Art - whose Paintings evoke his love of colour in the landscape.

Later he became a popular Art Lecturer at Stevenson College, Edinburgh. As an Edinburgh man he is proud to have been a member of ‘The Glasgow League of Artists’ and to have been their chairman in 1975-76. He has also been a chairman of Livingston Art Foundation and the Craigmillar Festival Society.

John Nelson now lives in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. He took early retirement to concentrate on developing his distinctive colourful paintings.

A Colourful Early Summer Exhibition at Juno
by Two Contemporary Artists
Martin Oates and Brian Phillips

Martin Oates
Martin Oates is a well established Artist from Glasgow. Largely self taught his Paintings depict intense ever changing atmosphere of the hills with hues ad colours of evening and morning light.

In this exhibition at Juno, Martin Oates continues to show his colourful watercolours in which he exhibits an intriguing a feeling of distance and atmosphere in the hills of the Scottish Landscape - which are a favourite with his ever increasing followers.

Brian Phillips
Brian Phillips moved to this area in September 2000 - where he is well known and loved for breaking the basic rules of painting in an exciting way. His paintings are easily recognisable as his own fresh, exiting and humorous works of Art which are orchestrated in a symphony of colour ... irreverent yet perfectly valid, vague yet precise demanding attention from the viewer. He says of his work, ''I have never lost sight of reality in my paintings, although I am probably further away from it now than I ever have been. I work hard to find colour combinations that should never see the light of day, yet still work in a bizarre sort of way.''

Pam has recently returned to painting the ever changing Scottish Landscape, working mainly in pastels in an expressive, intuitive and free flowing style allowing her individual and distinctive ‘floating’ colour palette to emerge.

Sarah Keer Keer

Early Spring Exhibition

An Unprecedented Early Spring Exhibition at Juno Design Gallery
Featuring Work from Two Exciting Contemporary Artists
Anderson Robertson and Georgie Young

Anderson Robertson DA, BA (hons) studied under the late David Donaldson RSA RP RGI LLD Dlitt, painter and Limner to her majesty. A graduate of Gray’s Aberdeen and The Glasgow School of Art, Anderson became an Elected member of the Glasgow Scottish Art Club in 1982 and became a professional member of Visual Arts Scotland in 1996.

Anderson has exhibited widely in various Annual Exhibitions in Scotland including the RGI and has exhibited in many prominent institutes of painting throughout the UK.

Married to the late painter Mary M M Christie, together they travelled extensively spending time with the Native Americans with the Sioux, Apache, Cree and Crow reservations this interest has been one of his lifelong passions with myths and legends appearing regularly in his work.

A successful career in Teaching followed, which spanned Scotland, becoming principal teacher in Prestwick Academy and the Nicholson Institute, Stornoway - later becoming Governor of Aberdeen College of Education and Convenor of the Central Advisory Committee on Art.

Anderson Robertson now lives and paints from his studio in Argyll. His style varies - he feels equally at home painting abstractly and realistically, enjoying the freedom of painting whatever the subject. Painting in oils he admits to being a painter of the old school - he believes strongly in the 'Craft' of painting. As a result he continues to be involved in Art's most demanding discipline, portraiture ... successfully exhibiting in the Royal Society of Portrait painters in the Mall Galleries.

Juno is delighted to exhibit the fine work of this local Artist.

Georgie Young is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art. She is now known for her semi-abstract Contemporary Scottish Landscapes. Her work aims to evoke a feeling and capture a sense of place - an atmosphere rather than reproduce a direct likeness. The original observation is processed, re examined and the essence is abstracted. Her work is an attempt to reveal the unexpected beauty of light, time, weather and season on everyday landscape.

Georgie now lives in Edinburgh and continues to exhibit in Galleries throughout the UK.

Juno is delighted to bring this must see Exhibition of work from two new and innovative Artists to Dunoon.

Open: Mon - Fri, 10am - 5pm
