"Common Ground: Exploring Urban and Rural Realms”, brings together artists Sheila MacNeill and Fiona Stewart in an exhibition that unveils the intriguing worlds of city dwellers and countryfolk. This unique artistic collaboration invites viewers to delve into the inner and outer landscapes of two contrasting environments.
Sheila MacNeill, whose roots are deeply embedded in the serene landscapes of Argyll, moved from lochs and hills to embrace city high-rises and canal-side living. Fiona Stewart, on the other hand, ventured out from her urban upbringing to immerse herself in the rustic and enchanting Scottish Highlands, embracing the cottagecore universe. In a narrative reminiscent of an 80s body-swap movie, these two artists converge at SaltSpace Gallery in Glasgow to share their stories through the mediums of painting and printmaking highlighting the disparities and connections they have uncovered within their respective landscapes.
Their art forms a captivating intersection between humanity and nature, providing viewers with a renewed sense of wonder and enchantment in the natural world. "Common Ground" is an exploration of the shared experiences of those dwelling in urban-sprawl and wild, untamed surroundings, revealing the interconnected rhythms that bind our lives to the landscapes we inhabit.
