An Tobar Gallery
An Tobar, Tobermory
The gallery is open Tues-Sat, 11am-4pm.
Sam Ainsley has chosen An Tobar gallery in Tobermory as the venue in which to present her first solo exhibition in Scotland for thirty years. Set in a small harbour town in the light and space of the Hebridean Isles, this choice of location seems to reflect the content of her paintings as contemplations of scale from the microscopic to the geographic which she terms "from the micro to the macro".
Her images are an exploration of the human relationship with the world and with the experience of living. Notions of human existence are scrutinised and re-formed visually through multiple themes; nature, landscape, the human body, politics and feminism, in an ongoing process that she has described as "emotional mapping".
