OUTER SPACES AT THE SCOTTISH GALLERY


This July saw the opening of my first solo show at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh. It was the culmination of a year's worth of work researching The Flow Country in Caithness and Sutherland in North east Scotland.
“Why should anyone bother to be interested in peat bogs and mires in general? They are not places where people have ever been notably comfortable. Indeed, in various ways our civilisation finds them very alien indeed. They are remarkably inaccessible, sometimes difficult to traverse on foot and always presenting obstacles to wheeled vehicles. They used to have a reputation for harbouring disease, and certainly the fen-men of former centuries were far from healthy.”
