Shelagh Atkinson

Her whole practice has expanded from painting and printmaking, photography to sound and text and pamphlets seemlessly crossing the infinite platforms/artforms.
The experience of place physically and visually offers a narrative possibility of pictures she calls it the music of the visual. Once quoted as an abundent meandering artistic production she rejects any notion of an association with theory ‘I do what I do with my voracious interest in so many subjects’ Much work comes straight from the heart perhaps some earlier work on something she has seen at a given moment Sometimes its imagery from the internal landscape of the mind drawing on the shape of the life path. Photography is central to the way she works, the camera as companion to the artistic process recording her longstanding empathy with environment and the moving images of journeys and the rest.
