The exhibition will highlight climate change and is the artist’s biggest exhibition of work in over 25 years.
‘Free Spirit’ enabled Artist Rothnie to channel her energy to feel free during the pandemic. She said: “Exhibiting at Skypark is my first real opportunity to show my work to a wider audience. After 25 years raising my family, I'm exploding onto the Glasgow art scene and Skypark has the largest selection of my works in one place.
“My influences range from the layers and colours of graffiti and street art to the patterns and symbols of traditional art of indigenous peoples across the world. I use my art as a vehicle to express and understand my feelings, pouring myself into them like a form of therapy.
“My painting ‘Regal Bear’ is a portrait of a polar bear that I feel is symbolic of the battle we are fighting with climate change and pollution and relevant in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow. While climate change remains the greatest threat to the polar bear’s survival, the oil and gas industry is currently turning its eyes to the arctic and with that comes the potential risks of further habitat destruction from the oil exploration work. The black human handprint symbolises mans’ presence whereas the open palm gesture urges us to stop and consider our actions.”
