This exhibition is the first UK show in 30 years by Marge Loudon Moody, a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design (DJCAD).
Moody has lived in the United States since 1983, and is currently a professor in the department of Fine Arts at Winthrop University, Rock Hill, South Carolina. She graduated with a Diploma and Post-Diploma in Drawing and Painting from DJCAD, now part of the University of Dundee, in 1972. The exhibition features one of her student works alongside stunning abstract paintings created during in her time in the USA.
The artist explains, “My work is inspired by the spirit of place and emanates from my experience of different places and from my imagination. I work in series’ because one idea suggests many possible responses. Line, shape, colour and space are intuitively manipulated until they find their exact place in the piece as I achieve a harmonious expression of the essential nature of the subject.”
