Sarah Carringtonview from the edge

View from the Edge is a series of paintings and drawings by Sarah Carrington that explores our relationship with the coastline – being on the edge of the land, where vast vistas are experienced.

Visiting the shoreline brings us to the very edge of the land, leaving behind our everyday existence, and allowing us to become more aware of our humanity and fragility within a vast and powerfully created world. Often we are drawn to “the edge” and keep revisiting, as the views become familiar, and perhaps because we find a sense of peace and space amidst our typically crowded lives.

These views from the edge seek to portray the beauty and vastness of the varied and unique coastline of Scotland.
