Jan Yates Open Studio

Artist-in-residence, Jan Yates will hold an open studio on Saturday 25th June to show what she has created while being based at Sumburgh Head the past few weeks.

For the past decade in all seasons and weather, Canadian artist, Jan has made work outside on protected farmlands, remote coastlines and dense forests. She states: “The process of working on site is integral; cultivating an intimate dialogue with the earth’s growth, decay and renewal. These outdoor encounters are the catalysts for in-studio exploration, evolving into a cyclical body of work mapping a quest for preservation, while contemplating the consequence of change.

Her time at Sumburgh Head has given her a different perspective to work from.

Jan's work will be available to view on Saturday 25th June from 1.00pm to 4.00pm, where she will be available with to talk about what she has been painting and her response to our landscape.
