Painting the Polar North by Lesley Burr


Award-winning artist Lesley Burr came to prominence as part of the 1980s 'Glasgow Girls' group that emerged from the Glasgow School of Art. This book, and a linked exhibition, arise from a revelatory artist's residency in the Canadian Arctic that Lesley undertook in 2019. Over 50 stunning colour reproductions of Lesley's Arctic works, plus perceptive texts by the book's contributors, let Lesley share her responses to the trip and her wider preoccupation with the natural world. Her exhibition, Polar North, is on display at the Shetland Museum & Archives from the 10th of March - 26th of May 2024.
