In her first ex­hi­bi­tion in Ed­in­burgh since 2014, Beth Robert­son Fid­des has pro­duced a pow­er­ful, evoca­tive and dy­namic col­lec­tion of new work. With a re­turn to her High­land roots, Beth has deep­ened her con­tin­u­ing artis­tic ex­plo­ration of land and sea. ‘My work has some­times been de­scribed as hav­ing an oth­er­worldly qual­ity to it and, in a sense, this was partly my ob­jec­tive.’ The ex­hi­bi­tion will run from 15 April un­til 20 May.
