New University of Dundee Exhibition

... a new exhibition in the Tower Foyer Gallery from this coming Saturday, featuring new and old work by renowned painter and Duncan of Jordanstone College graduate Marge Loudon Moody. This will be Marge's first show in Great Britain in 30 years - she has lived in the USA since 1983, and is currently a Professor in the department of Fine Arts at Winthrop University, Rock Hill, South Carolina. She graduated with a Diploma and Post-Diploma in Drawing and Painting from Duncan of Jordanstone in 1972.

The exhibition features stunning abstract paintings created during in her time in the USA, alongside one of her student works from the Duncan of Jordanstone College Collection. 

Marge explains: “My work is inspired by the spirit of place and emanates from my experience of different places and from my imagination. I work in series because one idea suggests many possible responses. Line, shape, colour and space are intuitively manipulated until they find their exact place in the piece as I achieve a harmonious expression of the essential nature of the subject.”

The exhibition will be on display in the Tower Foyer Gallery, University of Dundee until 16 November. Admission is free.
