Ascent: New Paintings by Ellis O’Connor at Rhue Art Gallery is based on her experience of Assynt, Sutherland in the far north of Scotland. She explains: “I’m drawn to extremes, places that are raw, where the elements are unforgiving. It feels real to me and I’m fascinated by untamed lands and how they make me feel alive. Being in nature gives me perspective and it is this feeling of awe and my own experience of being immersed in a wild place that I aim to put across to the viewer, so they too can feel the sheer significance of the landscape.” Rhueart Gallery sits on a headland near Ullapool where Loch Broom faces the Summer Isles and ferries sail to and from the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.
