The River Aude is compressed in the depths of its gorge. The influential moon is beyond mountains where night lies down. In this painting of evening perfumes where rock is a veil there is nowhere to stand. The trees offer up their spring flowers, the beauty of blossom acquiesces to the element of rock which contains every simplicity — curve, zigzag, cut, star-ray, hole, peak.


John Slavin

Artist Statement: The fire of light and the breath of air, the depths of land and the dance of trees make landscape a fantastic reality through which life can wander or surge with the freedom of a dreamer. I sit and draw the nature that has come to be manifest in an aesthetic display far removed from chaos or system or motive. My pencil contains my box of paints as my heart and eye contain a love for the mountain. Member: Society of Scottish Artists and Aberdeen Artists Society.
