Scottish artist Meig Sutherland’s work focuses on the human form. Born from her love of life drawing, she explores ways to represent the human body. Meig is spontaneous in her approach, using continuous line and gestural mark making. The further she takes a piece the more abstracted the forms become. From a starting doodle, figures and faces will begin to overlap and entwine, elements flow freely between and around, under and over each other.
Her use of colour is experimental – favouring bold hues that reflect the emotion and atmosphere portrayed withing the work. Meig takes influences from a number of painters; Paul Klee, Jenny Saville, HAP Grieshaber and Georgia O’Keeffe to name a few.
Meig graduated from DJCAD with a BA(Hons) Fine Art, 2020.
