Holly Johnson Gallery presents Eric Cruikshank’s exhibition, "An Echo," representing a selection of recent works on paper.

Taking landscape as an initial starting point, Cruikshank’s focus is on the emotive qualities of place. In the absence of imagery or narrative, the works are left open to interpretation, as an almost blank plane to reflect one’s own emotions and ideas. Using an objective palette tied to the Scottish landscape, color acts as a vehicle to reveal the picture planes underlying points of reference; with the works being grounded in the everyday, the viewer is encouraged to readdress notions of their surroundings, where the familiar is made full of possibility.

This group of monochromatic and color gradient works on paper include oil, mixed media, pastel, and colored pencil. The works are completed with a meticulous level of control with color and impression of light being two major topics. Fields of color come under close scrutiny - with their refined shades and contours - and lead the eye around each piece, gently engaging the viewer in the act of looking.

The artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery will continue through June 15.
