Further info

Julia Sorrell RI RBA is the first artist to be awarded the ACE Foundation TravelArt Award which allows an artist to travel across cultural boundaries to create new works of art. 
With its striking geological features and archaeological remains, Orkney proved a rich subject for Sorrell’s artistic preoccupations. Her sensitive interpretation of its coastline and prehistoric structures has produced a fine series of paintings and watercolours, which give a wonderfully dynamic example of the interplay between form and feeling.  
Living in her van and a coast guard survival suit for 5 weeks, Sorrell’s visit to Orkney followed in the footsteps of her father, noted archaeological illustrator and artist Alan Sorrell, who was commissioned to draw such sites as Skara Brae.
