A response to one of Scotland’s best-loved classics of landscape literature, this new series of paintings by artist Rose Strang was commissioned by the Folio Society London for their 2021 publication of The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd.
Here is a really lovely video showing Rose's work and inspiration for her beautiful set of paintings. Wonderful music by BAFTA winning composer Atzi Murumatsu.
The paintings were on display in The Scottish Poetry Library during March 2023. Art critic Vivien Devlin reviewed the exhibition in Art Mag stating:
"They say that a picture paints a thousand words. ‘Dreaming a Response’ to this meditative, soulful memoir, Rose Strang’s lyrical landscapes translate the prose with such ice-cool clarity: enriching, enchanting, painterly poems in tribute to Nan’s beloved mountains".
The paintings will be available for sale in collaboration with the Heriot Gallery, 20a Dundas Street, Edinburgh EH3 6HZ from April 17 - 23 2023.
Rose Strang will be present at the Private View during which Atzi Murumatsu will be playing his composition on cello.
