"This piece is based around the various strange myths of the island Inchkeith in the Firth of Forth. From James IV's experiments to disprove the voice of god, to the archaeological discoveries found within the rock forms, multiple narratives are woven together with the natural undergrowth and animals found on the island to create an intricate yet bold print that slowly reveals the island's surreal tales."
Enlisting a spectrum of natural phenomenon spiralled together with hints of folklore, Natasha Russell’s work creates a dynamic and fascinating impact. Through detailed drawings and intricate printmaking Russell explores hidden depths of the landscapes around us. Each piece eludes to absorbing mythos whilst adopting influence from organic structures; These realms interact convincingly throughout the works to provide a dialogue between culture and environment. Swirling through caverns and reaching through forests, using blossoming lines to describe an interaction between the immediate landscape and the imagined. The monochrome and limited palettes of natural hues soothe the dexterous quality of each piece and lend an evasive curiosity that keeps viewers engaged.
