Fiona North

Fiona North was born in England in 1957 and moved to Aberdeen in 1960. After gaining an HNC in Fine art she progressed onto painting at Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen graduating in 2010. "In my work I try to capture the atmosphere found within the different spaces we experience in life. The powerfully evocative feeling of absence we sense within abandoned and empty buildings where the past and memories linger, in contrast to the intimate space of figure(s) pre-occupied in everyday situations."
