Glass, Bronze & Prints

5 August – 11 September 2017

The first solo exhibition from this Royal College of Art graduate is a powerful statement of intent.  Primarily a glass artist, his work comments on notions of connection, identity and belonging, and references the raw, emotive, elemental landscape of his native Highlands and Islands.  Peat and local soils were used in the glass castings but the show also includes screen prints, bronze casts of peats, Canadian moose antlers as well as stag antlers and sheep skulls in glass. Much of the work follows on from his period as Suileachan Artist-In-Residence in Uig in 2016.
