Antarctica: ice and light
An exhibition of paintings by Malize McBride
10 July - 30 September 2007
A Scottish painter, Malize lives and works in Aberfeldy. She studied with the OCA and has shown work in their exhibitions, and at Frames Gallery, Perth; House of Menzies Gallery, Aberfeldy; Bankside Gallery, London, and at the Watermill Gallery, Aberfeldy where she held a one-woman exhibition in 2006 and is working towards another in Spring 2008. She is principally a landscape painter in oil and watercolour although in her recent more abstract work also uses monoprint techniques.
About her exhibition in Cambridge, she says, "My father's battered Penguin copy of Apsley Cherry-Garrard's 'The worst journey in the world' introduced me at sixteen to the fascination of Antarctica. The spark was rekindled a little later by F.A.Worsley's 'Shackleton's boat journey' and thereafter by anything else I could find on the subject. I finally had the chance to visit the Antarctic peninsula in 2004. What astounded me above all was the beauty of the icebergs; their purity, infinite variety and their exquisite intrinsic blueness. These pictures are the result.
The paintings will be on sale from the Museum Shop throughout the exhibition.
