Natasha Todd: Connected Landscapes
Natasha Todd’s Connected Landscapes is an exploration of Perthshire’s natural environments. Todd’s series of paintings follows the rivers Tay and Earn, along Allan Water and through the Falls of Dochart. The journey depicts the ephemeral nature of the water and evocative Scottish landscape. Each painting reflects the changing seasons through the soothing colour palette and delicate forms that together create harmonious works. Todd’s contemporary paintings have weightless compositions; extending lines to highlight space and experiment with the fragility of the abstract shapes.
Connected Landscapes includes traditional landscape paintings chosen from the Perth Museum and Art Gallery collection to juxtapose the contemporary works. These paintings include works by Horatio McCulloch and William Miller Frazer.
Natasha Todd graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design with a First-Class degree. She was awarded the John Milne Purvis prize for outstanding painting and drawing. Todd has exhibited in The RSA Annual Open Exhibition in both 2013 and 2014. Last year she has shown in Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2017, London, and The Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh.
