Mary Golden’s current projects are concerned with an investigation into the characteristics and peculiarities of elements of the Scottish landscape, in particular, the individuality of the mountains of Glencoe and their shape. She explores how their natural forms sit within the landscape, their looming presence, how they relate to each other and how they are looked at and experienced.
At the same time, Mary has drawn into what is found underfoot when walking through Glencoe and on other Scottish moorland. Looking at the remarkable diversity of flora which creates its own intricate and detailed landscape, Mary creates paintings and drawings of this as a contrast to the large landscapes in which it is found. Her work expresses elements of both a broad landscape range and the close-up world of the moor habitat itself.
