The stunning Inverewe Gardens welcomes a new visitor for the next six weeks who is planning to radically overhaul the blank walls of its gallery.

Swedish-born artist David Sandum arrives at the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) site tomorrow to begin filling the blank walls of the Sawyer Gallery, with paintings and drawings inspired by the rugged beauty of Inverewe.

The gallery is located inside Inverewe House, which stands in the centre of the world-famous site on the shores of Loch Ewe.

Mr Sandum will be creating his artwork within the enclosed space around the gardens as well as interacting with members of the public for as long as possible during his stay.

The artist, who works in a variety of mediums including oils, watercolours and charcoal, as well as print-making, began drawing and painting at the turn of the millennium as a way of coping with depression.

The Swede, who resides in the town of Moss in Norway, took inspiration from Edvard Munch’s philosophy that relays that everybody should write our paint their life story.

The exhibition has been titled Evolving Impressions and has been commissioned to capture and develop the going ons at the gardens.

Kevin Frediani, operations manager at Inverewe, said: “David is such an interesting artist and we can’t wait to see how his experience at Inverewe inspires his imagination.

“With such a rich environment and so many interesting people who spend time here as volunteers, staff and visitors, his creation will be a true one-off.”

A meet-the-artist event will take place on Saturday, August 17.
