Rachel Hobkirk and Hermione Macmillan are 2 emerging talents we’re very excited to share this month.
Both have recently returned from stints in the Far East, and the new works capture their ever evolving styles; Hobkirk with her constructed canvases that leave viewers questioning the flatness and depth they see. And Macmillan’s continued objectification of urban shapes and the play of angles and perspective.
6 new paintings are in the gallery now.

Featured in our Best Of Scottish Grads Show 2017, Rachel continues to marvel with her exploration into the illusion of pictorial space with her constructed canvases. As the recipient of the RSA David Michie Travel Award, she recently returned from a research trip to Japan. It was during this time, that this latest body of works was created. She’s definitely one to watch.

After graduating in 2016, Hermione has spent the last 2 years living and working in Hong Kong. We’re delighted to introduce her to the gallery with this new series of paintings;
“My Hong Kong Landscape series is a take on the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Having lived in there for two years, the tall skyscrapers, intricately air-conned windows and tram-filled streets made an ever-challenging scene to work with. I hope to have drawn on Hong Kong’s true character in these paintings using the maze of shapes, detail and colour it provides.”
