- Rockscapes Kari de Koenigswarter and Malize McBride

Sat 25th Mar 2017 - Sun 14th May 2017

This exhibition brings together two complementary artists, Kari de Koenigswarter and Malize McBride. They have been engaged for many years in the study of rock. Not just in a scientific, geological sense but rock in all its associations and cultural meanings. ‘Rock is fundamental to all our lives’, says Malize, ‘it is our bank of raw materials and our oldest history book.’ The two artists have frequently worked together. Since 2004 they have been on annual working expeditions to a variety of locations all over Scotland and in Europe. Although they work in different media both artists see their collaboration as not only critically valuable but also constantly stimulating. Kari’s main focus for some years has been on the use of beeswax and raw pigments. This allows her to create images which have a strong physical weight and presence. Malize is primarily interested in the geology of Scotland and uses many different media to express her fascination with the vast timescales and colossal forces revealed by geology. These include using graphite, watercolour, acrylic and a variety of printing techniques.

Sunshine and snow

Posted: Sat 14th Jan

Life is good It's a wonderful crisp, sunny, snowy day here at The Watermill. The baristas are working to a soundtrack of mellow jazz and the coffee smells fantastic. People stamp the snow off their boots as they come in and either go down for a cup of something warming or upstairs for a wander through the gallery or set about having a serious browse among the books. A customer is in a comfy chair between the poetry section and Thrillers having a quiet read. Life is good!!
