Katie Hammond Solo Exhibition Lacuna Little Lake Aberdeen Arts Centre
Grayâ€™s School of Art Graduate Katie Hammond is hosting a solo exhibition at Aberdeen Arts Centre at 33 King Street with an opening evening on Friday 28th June 2019 from 6pm - 9pm. Entry is free and there will be drinks and nibbles provided at the opening. The exhibition will then be open Tuesday to Saturday 10am - 4pm until 30th July 2019.
The exhibition will include her new mixed media paintings. This collection comes together as a calming oasis for visitors to wander through. Katie finds painting therapeutic and uses unusual processes and layers different materials onto her canvases. She often paints with her hands and experiments with different surfaces. The theme and process of creating the paintings is very tactile which really helps her personally as an escape from the struggles of having Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.
Lacuna; A pause or a break in text, painting or musical work.
Katie invites you to take some time out to breathe.
She layers encaustic wax, oils and varnish, and hopes to create â€˜Dreamscapesâ€™ which encompass transitory moments within nature. Her inspiration comes from Robert Macfarlane and Nan Shepherdâ€™s beautiful writings which often personify natureâ€™s pools of water. They describe nature as breathing alongside us; creating moments that lull us into a dream-like calm. So if the wild is a living entity, try to imagine deeper into the water in an attempt to visualise what it sees; looking back up at the trees as they peer down into it. This is how nature must see itself.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
