Robbie Lawrence - Northern Diary
Following on from Robbie Lawrence’s institutional solo show at Stills, Edinburgh, Webber Gallery are delighted to be exhibiting Northern Diary in London this summer.
Northern Diary brings together a selection of work that Lawrence has produced over the past seven years, many of which have never been seen before in a gallery setting. Subjects include landscapes, portraits and still lives made across Scotland’s cities, rural locations and coastal towns. Rather than a documentary assignment on post-Brexit Britain, Lawrence’s approach to producing the exhibition has been to interweave the narratives and relationships of people and places to convey a humanist affirmation of life north of the border, against the backdrop of the broader social and political climate throughout the UK.
Included in this exhibition are photographs from Lawrence’s series A Voice Above The Linn, documenting his visits to the home and garden of Jim Taggart who died in 2019. Taggart was a botanist, climate activist and the creator of Linn Botanic Gardens on the Rosneath Peninsula in the West of Scotland.
