Hope Turnbull In Front of the Closed Window I, 2021 45 x35 cm Oil on canvas
Hope Turnbull is a painter and printmaker based between Newcastle and Edinburgh. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2021. Hope's work plays with the crucial point between reality and fiction so that a recognisable, comfortable environment shifts to a more dreamlike and eerie space.
This work evokes the encroachment of the outside into a domestic setting - a familiar feeling for Edinburgh residents dealing with drafty tenement windows!
