Re­sipole Studios is kick­ing off 2017 with its an­nual spring group show and a solo show by Anna Raven, Seek­ing Still­ness, which will be on dis­play in the gallery’s White Room.

Re­sipole Studios is delighted to host its sec­ond solo show by Ard­gour-based artist, Anna Raven. Seek­ing Still­ness is a col­lec­tion of mixed-me­dia art­works, pro­duced dur­ing her res­i­den­cies in Shet­land and Eigg in 2016, that look at the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the in­te­rior self and its ex­te­rior el­e­ments.

From years liv­ing in the High­lands of Scot­land and trav­el­ling to these iso­lated is­lands, Raven's re­la­tion­ship with the out­doors has be­come an in­te­gral part of her prac­tice. ' Over the past two years my life has de­vel­oped a rhythm, some­thing of my own in­ter­nal weather.' She has em­barked on a process of sub­mis­sion and ex­plains that she wants ' the place to work on me so that I can find a voice to rep­re­sent what it has to say'. Her artist res­i­den­cies are spent in com­plete soli­tude, so she can ex­pe­ri­ence the ex­te­rior en­vi­ron­ment, by look­ing out and bet­ter un­der­stand her own in­te­rior land­scape, by look­ing in. Seek­ing Still­ness presents a series of works that com­bine a style of ab­strac­tion and rep­re­sen­ta­tion, visu­ally com­bin­ing the ob­jec­tive with the sub­jec­tive and sym­bol­is­ing the bi­nary be­tween the artist and the el­e­ments.

Seek­ing Still­ness runs in ac­cor­dance with Re­sipole Studios' Spring Show, the an­nual group ex­hi­bi­tion of gallery artists, which will be on show in the main gallery.
