Dominique Gais is a French artist who spent time in Ullapool earlier this year. The work exhibited is in response to the environment surrounding Rhue and the collaboration between her and Landscape painter James Hawkins. The infinite variations of nature are the basis of her creation; she uses these elements by changing their context. Her “photo-paintings” and paintings describe a dreamed reality, expressive, trying to show the abstraction of nature. “As our ancestors from prehistory were using the roughness of the walls to emphasize the shoulder of a bison, I rely on the natural element photographed to develop my compositions.”
Her work is on display at Rhue Art Gallery, Ullapool from 25 Aug. – 31 Oct.
