About Victoria

Victoria Orr Ewing (b.1962) is a Scottish contemporary landscape painter. She is best known for her large scale paintings of uncultivated wilderness where weather and nature dominate. 

She lived and painted  in Andalucia for sixteen years, drawn to its wild landscapes and changing light. On her return to Britain this emphasis remained in her art, emboldened by the dark, complex hues of Scotland’s weather.

Orr Ewing works from sketches done in front of the subject and often finished from memory. In her two recent solo exhibitions at The Fine Art Society, we see remote crofts and unsullied vistas of the Hebrides and west coast of Scotland. Luminescent skies dwarf empty land and seascapes. The glowing machair and heather clad hillsides inject colour into otherwise dream like scenes. 

Far from urban life, they invite you to escape a highly stimulated world and meditate in nature’s power.

“My art is my way of responding to the spirit that rolls through all things, and answer to my passion for wild, unspoiled places. I am fascinated by the mysterious way paint expresses the inexplicable. Atmosphere and light are crucial to the impact of my paintings. Although inspired by a geographical place, I want to express the universal essence of landscape with just enough to let beholder form their interpretation, A solitary house, an isolated road or seemingly futile fence referencing a sense of our ephemerality in the face of nature's enduring vastness.”
