Ruth Nicol’s popular solo exhibition East Neuk ended 8 March 2020. The final week of the exhibition coincided with St Andrews’ international poetry festival StAnza and featured in the festival’s Inspire Sessions.
The exhibition depicted coastlines and villages in this corner or neuk of Fife’s east coast. Ruth Nicol captures the contrast between the built environment, drawn with precision, and large areas of land, sea and sky painted in a free, expressive style. Her paintings and sketches exude energy. Visitors have appreciated her outstanding skill in colour blending and composition.
Ruth Nicol is considered one of Europe’s finest landscape artists.
