Ages of Wonder on Tour

The Art of Etching

Maclaurin Galleries, Ayr

22 January – 24 March

The exhibition features historical prints from the Academy’s Collection and brand new etchings commissioned for the exhibition. I created Belonging which was printed in the Academy during the exhibition.

I modified the Elie to Arbroath Admiralty Chart circa 1963 to include a focus on Balmungo, the former home of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham. (The shell featured belonged to her). Without a doubt the view across this bay informed her work.

The landscape featured also has personal resonance for me as it has farms named on it farmed by my forebears.



Trails and Tales – Cadder

Work in progress for a commission to be sited beside the Forth & Clyde Canal adjacent to the pathway close to Cadder.

The design on this side of the sculpture is developed from Talwin Morris’ cover for A Very Odd Girl. I was particularly interested in his use of colour and how I could adapt this design to work in durable granite, using the technique of sandblasting with the embellishment of enamel paint. (It’s under plastic here to protect the tacky paint surface from dust whilst I ground the edges of the block to soften them).

Blackie & Sons’ Villafield Press was situated close to the site. My work draws on the intriguing relationship between Walter Blackie, Talwin Morris and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
