Anna Somerville graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2000 and works from her studio at Summerhall in Edinburgh.
Somerville is known for her expressive painterly style, and has been awarded the prestigious Elizabeth Blackadder & John Houston Travel Award, 2000, and Anne Redpath Award for painting, 2003.
This series of work has all been painted this year and the works on show have been inspired by Somerville’s recent travels to India, Sri Lanka and Tenerife, as well as her home city of Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.
Somerville paints intuitively in mixed media and oil to imagine atmospheric horizons. These expressive paintings deliver expansive compositions of abstracted light and form.
