Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Gesso, Household and Wood on Wood.

This painting was made as part of a series during a residency on the Isle of Eigg in the Scottish Hebrides. I worked in collaboration with a poet and musician, exploring the landscape of this beautiful, inspiring island which is community-owned and relies solely on renewable fuel for the island's energy needs.

‘East - Harbour’ is a view of the harbour bay from the island, looking out to sea. There is the sense of a haven, which has a lot to
do with people met there, but also the fact of physically having being on most parts of the island. You find your place, then leaving to return to the mainland brings mixed feelings. Islands can seem an oasis from a troubled world, which is no doubt why religious or spiritual centres are often founded on islands.

You can view a 6 minute video montage of the paintings, poetry and music from the project on this link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFl2u2k33Jc
