Several of the artists we are showing in our next pop-up exhibition at Creake Abbey  have turned their attention to a named point of reference, like a stretch of water or geographical location. Linda Jamieson responds to landscape with an emotional intensity that encapsulates its features, headlands and bays, fences and tracks. Her landscapes are often from a bird’s eye view. Jamieson finds forms within the rise and fall of the land, using overlapping jewel colours to describe a meadow or stream, as if laid out on a quilt.

Linda is one of 6 women artists we re thrilled to be showing at Creake Abbey this summer (August 10-23, open 10am to 4pm)
