Upland member Lizzie Farey has a new exhibition opening on Friday 5th September at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh, alongside French glass and porcelain artist - Antoine Leperlier.

The exhibition preview is Friday 5th September 6.30-8.30pm and the exhibition runs from 6th-30th September.

Concentus presents new work from willow sculptor Lizzie Farey. Latin for ‘harmony’ Concentus includes intricate structures that capture a still moment; a distillation and order. Calm after a storm. Intimate forms provide a hint of the process of creation. We can see and even feel points of tension in the work. Our eye can follow the artist’s hand, the choices made in twisting and turning this flexible medium.

Born in Singapore, Farey has been based in rural Galloway, in Scotland’s South West for the last 30 years. The rural setting of home and studio are her guiding inspiration, her sensitivity with wood revealing an interaction with nature that is deeply personal.

‘My work engages with nature. I focus on recreating the essence of natural form through the medium of willow, larch, ash, hazel and other locally grown woods. Influences from Japan continue to inspire my attempts to capture the simplicity, practicality and beauty of the materials.’ - Lizzie Farey, 2017.
