A publication to accompany the exhibition, Another Time, Another Place, held at The Scottish Gallery in April & May 2021.
Another Time, Another Place comprises twelve paintings by Victoria Crowe which inspired twelve poems by Christine De Luca to form a beautiful conversation between an artist and a poet. These twelve paintings represent a return to work in her studio in West Linton, where Crowe has found full expression of her life force, after battling serious illness which forced her to put her practice on pause. The result is a contemplative group of paintings, examining the idea of finding the profound outside your window.
Great art is both timeless and of its moment. The twelve paintings by Victoria Crowe and the accompanying poems by Christine De Luca in this book will resonate powerfully with our memories of isolation and confinement during lockdown.
But through the intensity of their observation, their emotion and imagination, the artist and the poet remind us that we should never take the ordinary for granted and that there is mystery and wonder to be found even in our most familiar surroundings.
—Sir John Leighton, Director-General, The National Galleries of Scotland
