Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

This work was inspired by James Guthrie's portrait of rural character "Old Willie" in Glasgow' Kelvingrove Museum. As she looks at it, the fashionably-dressed museum visitor imagines she is in a woodland setting; and a woodpecker that she has seen elsewhere in the Museum appears, and begins to peck at the frame.

With a deadpan humour in the spirit of Magritte, this work prompts philosophical questions about what is real and what isn't in a work of art; but it also makes us ask whether through the imagination the contemporary world can re-connect to the rural life that was once common to all .
