Artist Ita Freeney's 'Water's Edge' was officially opened here at STAC on 16th February by Catherine Marshall. It presents a body of ethereally beautiful paintings produced over the last three years.
The sea is glimpsed at in all of these works but they are not seascapes per se. They play with abstraction and representation - finding and emphasising abstract forms in reality, while also observing nuances of colour, tone and form to evoke mood and atmosphere. It was a pleasure to sit down with Ita for a chat about her inspirations and her practice here at STAC on the morning after the opening reception.

Water's Edge runs until March 18th - gallery open 10am to 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
