Press and Journal “Artist Putting Big Question In The Frame” by Kenneth Watt

A north-east artist is trying to capture the significance of the independence vote on canvas. Nicole Porter, who runs her own gallery in Aberdeen’s King Street, has ben working on it since September 2012. The 6ft-long scene, which features six voters leaving a polling station, is her way of recording the importance of the referendum. She said: “This is too big an event to miss. I like the idea of the painting almost capturing the historical sense of it.” The artwork is far from complete, as Ms Porter wants to fit in every detail from both the Yes and No campaigns. “I’ve deliberately not made the painting either ‘for’ or ‘against.’ The six different people will all have their own opinions. I want the painting to be more about capturing the event and not necessarily the result.”
