Art from the Isle of Skye
Beautiful mixed media, mosaic and collage art from Morag Archers's Island studio on the northern tip of the Scottish Isle of Skye. The studio is nestled in a wild landscape with uninterrupted sea views towards the Scottish mainland. Intuitive and organic would perhaps best describe my way of working using mixed media and collage, with images slowly revealing themselves in stages. Each element plays its part. Tiny upcycled paper fragments lovingly added layer upon layer; accents of ink, paint, and gold leaf are stirred into the eclectic mix. Whimsical and playful, my style is strongly inspired by favourite artists Chagall, Klimt, Hundertwasser and Gaudi. A previous background in woven textiles has fuelled my desire to produce rich textural mixed media surfaces filled with pattern and colour.
Inspiration all around...
The Isle of Skye, world famous for its panoramic landscapes and dramatic skies is my home and my inspiration. I don't recreate the landscapes I see, instead I interpret them through my imagination.
