It is so easy to get to Glasgow from Edinburgh! I have been wanting to visit and explore for some time and finally I made the trip. I absolutely love the city and the decorations in the centre has put me into a real Christmas spirit. If you thinking of a wee pup to Glasgow I can recommend bus 900 (£10 return ticket). It’s a 24 hour bus that goes about every 15minutes. You can purchase the ticket on the coach with your card. #christmasspirit #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #glasgowstory #icu_scotland #scotlandbeauty #peoplemakeglasgow #scotland_greatshots #scotlandshots #photosogbritain #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #glasgowsnapshots #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #visitglasgow #glasgowlife #thisisglasgow #glasgowcenter #exploreglasgow #glasgowchristmas #glasgowchristmaslights at Glasgow, United Kingdom

The battle of Culloden was fought on this moor 16.4.1746 Peaceful, beautiful, poignant, sad Our visit to Culloden battlefield has exceeded our expectations! The visitors centre is absolutely worth visiting! The exhibits are very informative and it really sets the mood for the walk through the battlefield. It is one of those places where you get to feel history in your bones. #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #cullodenbattlefield #icu_scotland #scotlandbeauty #ukshots #jacobiteuprising #scotland_greatshots #scotlandshots #photosogbritain #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #invernessscotland #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #roadtripuk #outlander #scottishhistory #scottishclans #1746 #battleofculloden #scotspirit at Culloden Battlefield

Instead of continuing on the A82 From Glen Coe to Fort William we decided to take the A828 to Oban (An t-Òban = The Little Bay). Oban is not just a beautiful little coastal town, it is also a port with boat connections to the Inner and Outer Hebrides. We were only taking a day trip so we stayed on the mainland and explored around the town. The Bay Area is really pretty and the restaurants offer an amazing seafood selection. It comes as no surprise Oban is considered to be the Seafood Capital of Scotland. #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #seafoodlovers #icu_scotland #scotlandbeauty #ukshots #scottishislands #scotland_greatshots #scotlandshots #photosogbritain #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #edinburghsnapshots #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #roadtripuk #obanscotland #scottishcoast #a828 #prettylittletown #sunsetandsunrise #daybythesea at Oban

A YEAR AT THE EASEL⠀ ⠀ Lachlan Goudie⠀ ⠀ 31 Oct 2018 - 27 Nov 2018⠀ ⠀ ‘have been painting in the shipyards of Govan and Rosyth for almost ten years now. They represent an awe-inspiring studio, places where vast subjects rise up before you: slowly evolving compartments and bulkheads that eventually combine to form the hull of a ship - dwarfing the workers that are engaged in its creation. It has been an exhilarating experience for me, making art in industrial locations that are sometimes thought to be an unlikely source of inspiration.’⠀ ⠀ You can view a selection of Lachlan’s sketchbooks and drawing materials at The Scottish Gallery as part of the exhibition.

Another very special big birthday treat that I picked up today from @scottishgallery, the hauntingly beautiful ‘Belmont’ by @edkluz! Such a stunning screenprint with amazing details (swipe for close-up). I would love to know more about the history of Belmont, but for the moment, I’m savouring this screenprint, infusing it with my own narratives, both imagined and real. There are elements of this scene that symbolise my own personal life experiences, which is why I fell in love with it from the outset. There were others that I liked too but I kept coming back to this one, and I’m so glad I bought it! Just can’t wait for my husband to hang it up on our wall! #thescottishgallery #edkluz #screenprint #ownartscheme #cornersofmyhome #printmaking #cherishandrelish

A YEAR AT THE EASEL⠀ ⠀ Lachlan Goudie⠀ ⠀ 31 Oct 2018 - 27 Nov 2018⠀ ⠀ ‘After returning to the studio from my travels, I often begin my time at the easel by painting still lifes. I find that the process of considering a series of static objects and describing their relationship in paint, focuses the mind. After weeks of rapid sketching in the open air, life in the studio proceeds at a much slower pace. The challenges of evoking form and tone, of capturing the effects of texture and light become, for me, an intense and immersive creative experience.’⠀ ⠀ You can view a selection of Lachlan’s sketchbooks and drawing materials at The Scottish Gallery as part of the exhibition.

CRYSTALLINE⠀ ⠀ Emmeline Hastings⠀ ⠀ 31 Oct 2018 - 27 Nov 2018⠀ ⠀ Emmeline combines unexpected and contrasting materials in her Bristol studio. She uses her personally developed techniques of hand carving perspex acrylic and embedding it with metallic elements to create striking, beautiful and contemporary wearable sculpture. Her pieces capture fleeting moments; something glimpsed and remembered. Her ephemeral jewels reveal rough crystalline forms, surfaces dotted bristling with glittering metallic elements that shift and change in color and perspective. Working in perspex acrylic, her pieces are light and wearable with mysterious patterns of gold and silver seemingly organic to the form.⠀ ⠀ Murmur Double Drop Earrings, 2017⠀ black carved acrylic, oxidised silver, 18ct yellow gold⠀ ⠀ #EmmelineHastings #Crystalline #Bristol #Perspex #Acrylic #Contemporary #Wearable #Sculpture #Jewels #Gold #Silver #Jewellery #TheScottishGallery #November

THE SEASONS⠀ ⠀ Gordon Bryce⠀ ⠀ 31 Oct 2018 - 27 Nov 2018⠀ ⠀ Gordon Bryce has quietly emerged over the last thirty years or so as the Scottish painter who carries the torch for contemporary belle peinture, a torch borne in previous generations by Anne Redpath and SJ Peploe. He is an easel painter with an endless fascination for his chosen medium, for composition and the subtle expressions of familiar landscape. His paintings do not shout for attention, they are the antithesis of the current vogue for artworks arising out of identity politics, instead giving us pause to recognise the value of simple pleasure and truth; his technical gifts are great, but they have never been set to serve the ego. In this modest exhibition of recent paintings, to be displayed in our garden gallery downstairs, we are reminded of the enduring value of well-made paintings which are of their time but timeless.⠀ ⠀ #GordonBryce #LandscapePainting #ScottishLandscapes #Scotland #TheScottishGallery #TheSeasons #OilonBoard #OilonPanel

It always amazes me how quiet and empty the streets of Edinburgh are in the morning, compare to the business of the day! On occasion when my work brings me to Edinburgh centre in the morning, I go a bit earlier and have a wee walk through Princes Street, quietly greeting the new day. It’s beautiful to see the sky dawning with pinky shades over the horizon and the Balmoral. #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #edinburghstory #icu_scotland #scotlandbeauty #edinburghlife #edinburghcity #scotland_greatshots #scotlandshots #photosogbritain #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #edinburghsnapshots #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #visitedinburgh #edinburgh_snapshots #thisisedinburgh #princesstreetedinburgh #exploreedinburgh #sunsetandsunrise #edinburghlights at Princes Street Gardens

Aka #lallybroch Built in 15th century, passed on through generations and lived in until the 20th century when it began to deteriorate. Some restoration works were done but not enough to restore it to its original glory. Nowadays it is only a shell and it is not possible to enter inside. Since it featured on the series #outlander many visitors are coming to see it. It is about 30min drive outside of Edinburgh. If you’d like to see it, stop by the farm shop on the way to pay for a visitor ticket (£10 per car). It is situated on private property and you cannot enter without the ticket. #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #scotlandtrip #icu_scotland #scotlandbeauty # #scottishhighlands #scotlandhighlands #scotland_greatshots #scotlandshots #photosogbritain #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #fortheloveofscotland #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #visituk #outlander #outlanderfilminglocation #scottishtravelphotography #wonderlustscotland at Midhope Castle

MEMORIES OF A THOUSAND YEARS⠀ ⠀ Koji Hatakeyama⠀ ⠀ 31 Oct - 27 Nov 2018⠀ ⠀ Hatakeyama’s ‘contained vessels’ use traditional bronze casting techniques by pouring molten metal into a mould which creates the basic shape or ‘box’ – each box is named after the number of ‘faces’ within the box shape and a matching bronze lid is made. Various chemicals are applied to the outer faces – such as miso paste and vinegar; the surface patination takes months to achieve. The completed surfaces are entirely abstract and deeply connected to his surrounding landscape. He applies gold, platinum or silver leaf to the interior. To complete the box, the base is often entirely polished back to bronze or gilded – every detail is deliberate and considered. The finished, signed piece is then placed inside a tomobako, a simple elegant wooden box bearing the signature and seal of the artist and the stamp of the tomobako box maker.⠀ ⠀ #KojiHatakeyama #TheScottishGallery #bronze #cast #boxes #MemoriesofaThousandYears #craft #Japanese #Japan #Scotland

MEMORIES OF A THOUSAND YEARS⠀ ⠀ Koji Hatakeyama⠀ ⠀ 31 Oct - 27 Nov 2018⠀ ⠀ Koji Hatakeyama was born in 1956 in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture, a mountainous region north west of Tokyo which has been a centre for bronze, copper and lacquerware production since the early 1600s. Hatakeyama studied metalwork at the Kanazawa College of Arts and Crafts in 1980 and since then he has concentrated his practice primarily in the creation of patinated, cast bronze boxes. These years of dedicated experimentation with bronze has made him a master craftsman. His work has been exhibited internationally and it is held in numerous museum collections worldwide.⠀ ⠀ #KojiHatakeyama #TheScottishGallery #bronze #cast #boxes #MemoriesofaThousandYears #craft #Japanese #Japan #Scotland

Ballad of Glencoe “Oh, cruel was the snow that sweeps Glencoe And covers the grave o' Donald. Oh, cruel was the foe that raped Glencoe And murdered the house of MacDonald They came in a blizzard, we offered them heat, A roof for their heads, dry shoes for their feet. We wined them and dined them, they ate of our meat And they slept in the house of MacDonald. They came from Fort William with murder in mind. The Campbell had orders King William had signed. "Put all to the sword"- these words underlined, "And leave none alive called MacDonald." They came in the night when the men were asleep, This band of Argyles, through snow soft and deep, Like murdering foxes amongst helpless sheep, They slaughtered the house of MacDonald. Some died in their beds at the hand of the foe; Some fled in the night and were lost in the snow; Some lived to accuse him who struck the first blow; But gone was the house of MacDonald.” Jim McLean #scotlandphotography #scotlandexplore #explorescotland #scotlandtrip #scottishroadtrip #scotlandbeauty #lovescotland #scottishhighlands #scotlandhighlands #scotland_greatshots #scotlandphotography #scotlandshots #scotlandphotographer #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #hikingscotland #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #scotlandroadtrip #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #visituk #firstsnow #ukshots #glencoe at Glen Coe, Scotland

Chestnuts have been grown by humans since about 2000 BCE and were brought here by the armies of Alexander the Great. They are very slow growing. It can be up to 50 years before they bear significant fruit. They don’t like to be alone and need to be planted in close proximity to one another otherwise they don’t bear fruit well. Chestnuts carry masculine energy and resonate with the fire element and the planet Jupiter. Their fruit can be eaten to encourage fertility and desire and may be carried as a charm by women who wish to conceive. Keeping chestnuts around the house (and eating them) encourages abundance. #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #scotlandtrip #scottishroadtrip #scotlandbeauty #lovescotland #scottishhighlands #scotlandhighlands #scotland_greatshots #scotlandphotography #scotlandshots #scotlandphotographer #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #hikingscotland #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #scotlandroadtrip #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #visituk #trossachs #forestscotland at Lochearnhead, Stirling, United Kingdom

Christmas card envy! Anyone who knows me well, knows how seriously I take my cards. Well, tonight I saw an array of stunning festive treats created by Robin Philipson, as well as watercolours and oils. As part of my day job, I helped provide some of the images for Elizabeth Cumming's new biography on this major figure in Scottish Art, and enjoyed the book launch tonight at The Scottish Gallery. Inspiration indeed! #robinphilipson #scottishart #booklaunch #christmascarddesign #edinburgh #thescottishgallery

Life is good when all this is at your doorstep! 🍂 Gear Aonach (=Short Ridge) and Aonach Dubh (= Black Ridge), two of the so-called ‘Three Sisters’. The final, most easterly sister, Beinn Fhada (Long Hill) is not on the picture.

Glen Coe is a U-shaped valley formed by a glacier about 10 000 years ago and it is probably Scotland’s most famous and most scenic Highland glen. It is every bit as famous for its history as its scenery. Although the word “coe” is believed to pre-date the Gaelic language, it is sometimes said to mean 'Glen of Weeping', which may be a reference to the infamous massacre of the 38 members of the clan MacDonald of Glencoe, on the 13th February 1692, on the grounds that they have failed to pledge their loyalty to the king. The legends say that The Caoineag, a female invisible spirit who foretells death in her clan by lamenting in the night at a stream or lake, was heard wailing on the night before the Glencoe massacre. #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #scotlandtrip #scottishroadtrip #scotlandbeauty #lovescotland #scottishhighlands #scotlandhighlands #scotland_greatshots #scotlandphotography #scotlandshots #scotlandphotographer #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #hikingscotland #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #scotlandsites #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #scotlandroadtrip #scottishpeaks #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #beautifuldestinations #wonderlust #visituk at Glen Coe, Scotland

Yesterday’s Trip: Ben Lomond (“Beacon Mountain “) a beautiful 974metres tall munro siting on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. On a good day it’s summit can be seen all the way from the top of Ben Nevis! There are two main routes to the top, the tourist path, an easier/gentler path with roughly paved steeper sections and the Ptarmigan Way following the Ptarmigan Ridge, a much rockier, steeper and harder path but with most amazing views of the mountain and Loch Lomond! In poor weather conditions however even the “easy route” can turn into a challenge and it is essential to have good footwear (NO TRAINERS!!) and warm layers with plenty of water in your rucksack. The temperature does drop noticeably towards the top and particularly the Ptarmigan Ridge is very windy. The view from the top is spectacular and it is well worth including in your itinerary of Scotland Trip. Please note that the start point: Rowardennan Car Park can get pretty busy! It has a free parking section and the paid one is £3 for a whole day (make sure you have change) #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #explorescotland #scotlandtrip #scottishroadtrip #scotlandbeauty #lovescotland #scottishhighlands #scotlandhighlands #scotland_greatshots #ukshots #scotlandshots #scotlandphotographer #scotland_traveloholic #scotlandscenery #hikingscotland #unlimitedscotland #thescottishcollective #thisisscotland #scotlandlover #scotlandsites #visualsofscotland #hiddenscotland #scotlandroadtrip #scottishpeaks #thescottishgallery #igscotland #igerscotland #beautifuldestinations #visituk at Ben Lomond

ENSEMBLE⠀ ⠀ Edmond Byrne⠀ ⠀ 3 - 27 Oct 2018⠀ ⠀ With Ensemble, Byrne moves in a new direction exploring the totem as a creative device for assembling ‘off cuts’ - glass parts that would normally be discarded during the making process in the workshop, collected and reassembled into exquisite objects. Byrne’s assem-blages allow him to query the intrinsic nature of his own work by exploring the aesthetic parameters, structures and space between each component in an act of reflection and re-functioning. Due to the components being ‘off-cuts’ they possess a residual identity with their parent object in the exhibit. This creates a subtle interplay between the assemblages and the surrounding work, sharing the same genetic code, born of the same mother-object.⠀ ⠀ Selection of Cylinders, Metameric Landscape, 2018⠀ mould blown glass with Kaolin patina⠀ Photograph: Beytan Erkman⠀ ⠀ #glass #EdmondByrne #artcollector #TheScottishGallery #Ensemble #mouldblownglass #Kaolinpatina #cylinders

IN THESE PLACES⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Calum McClure⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 3 - 27 Oct 2018⠀ ⠀ ⠀ There are many depictions of hothouses, especially those from Kew Gardens in London, in which the plants seem to outgrow their glass and iron houses. There is also an influence from Japanese prints in such works as Japanese Window (cat. 14). Here he has taken a print, which he saw in the British Museum and abstracted it, using various elements and colours from the original composition. A number of pieces focus on old abandoned country estates such as that of Valleyfield in Fife, evidence of the sometimes-temporary nature of particular power and wealth but perhaps also reminders that such power and wealth still exist elsewhere in the world today.⠀ ⠀ Barbican Conservatory, Abstract, 2018⠀ oil on canvas ⠀ 20 x 20 cms⠀ ⠀ Palm House Nocturne, 2018⠀ Monotype⠀ 92x 92 cms⠀ ⠀ #CalumMcClure #InThesePlaces #painting #monotype #Scottishart #Scottishpainting #ArtCollector #TheScottishGallery #EdinburghGalleries #MustSee #DaysOut

In his small monotypes, a deft, delicate touch accompanies a reductive handling of the medium. He makes these pieces using a steel plate as a surface, onto which printing inks are applied. Areas can be worked into repeatedly, wiped, inked, re-worked, and contemplated, before the final rendition is run through the press.⠀ ⠀ Sunday Walk, Victoria Park, 2017⠀ oil on canvas⠀ 120 x 180 cms⠀ ⠀ #CalumMcClure #InThesePlaces #painting #monotype #Scottishart #Scottishpainting #ArtCollector #TheScottishGallery #EdinburghGalleries #MustSee #DaysOut

SELVEDGE Lorna McIntosh 5 - 29 September 2018 Lorna’s work explores the connections and affinities between 18th Century chemistry, early palaeontology, mineralogy and emblematics and issues of a more personal nature, resulting in paintings with layers of meaning. In the museum case at the centre of the exhibition there is an array of developmental materials that explain her working process in further detail. #LornaMcIntosh #TheScottishGallery #Selvedge #oilpainting #fineart #Archespaper #paper #paint #artcollector #ScottishArt #BritishArt

STILL • LANDSCAPE • LIFE⠀ ⠀ David Eustace⠀ ⠀ 5 - 29 September 2018⠀ ⠀ “These are the photographs I would have hoped⠀ to paint.”⠀ ⠀ DAVID EUSTACE⠀ ⠀ An iron bridge, exposed to acid rain, frost, graffiti,⠀ repair, vandalism, pollution and wear becomes a⠀ paradigm for human experience but also for a⠀ painter’s technique. The scouring, building up and⠀ removing of material, dripping and throwing of paint⠀ and even the chance or ‘automatic’ so welcomed in⠀ dada practice, are all in the armoury of the painter⠀ who recognises that texture is part of the abstract.⠀ Eustace’s discovery of such a bridge in West London⠀ led him to make a series of abstract, painterly⠀ images in one day which are no less about time⠀ passing than the Harris works, but whose creation⠀ cemented for the artist a deep connection with⠀ painting. His subsequent ‘discovery’ of a parallel⠀ aesthetic in aspects in the work of Keith Vaughan⠀ and Morandi proved charming and confirmatory:⠀ the elegy of time passing, of emerging change,⠀ tonal subtlety and layering of texture could be⠀ constructed of captured.⠀ ⠀ GUY PEPLOE⠀ ⠀ #DavidEustace #photography #TheScottishGallery #photographs #series #international #Scottishart #JulieLawson #ScottishNationalPortraitGallery #StillLandscapeLife #GuyPeploe

UNEARTHED Stephen Bowers 5 - 29 September 2018 He plays with the historical and cultural signifiers associated with certain iconographies and Australian ‘cliches’ recur in his work. Parrots and cockatoos, are signature images, which he has described as being like personal ‘totems’, symbolic birds from his childhood. To those of us who have lived our lives in the Northern hemisphere these are exotic creatures, but they were ever-present in the once rural Sylvania where Bowers grew up. It has been suggested that for him they are ‘minatory symbols of larrikin defiance in the face of relentless urbanisation’.1 Other icons include Stubb’s Kongorou and the Sydney Harbour bridge. Surfaces are also embedded with fragments of William Morris wallpapers, Toile de Jouy fabrics, and the characters from Tenniel’s original illustrations for Alice in Wonderland that have been seemingly relocated to Australia. There are always more reasons than the purely decorative for their appropriation.

STILL • LANDSCAPE • LIFE David Eustace 5 - 29 September 2018 Guy Peploe and David Eustace in conversation Would you call yourself a collector? Yes. But it’s not a collection as such; that’s too finite, its just stuff; but each object and picture become a part of you, adopted and personal. Sometimes things are found, or cost pennies; other times you shell out a great deal of money and make a sacrifice, but value to me is not measured by money. It might be worth a fortune or indeed very little but that leads us down another road in terms of what we measure as being of real value… for me it’s often walking past a simple little object and it making me stop and smile for all the right reasons and that’s rarely pounds and pennies. Have you ever regretted buying something or not buying either? No not really. There’s been times I wished I could have afforded something but I’ve tried to be realistic about it and understanding that for some reason it wasn’t meant to be at that time. I remember looking at an Irving Penn photographic (four section platinum “Cigarette”) print back in the mid 90’s. I think it was being offered (from a gallery in London) at £7,500. I saw the same print edition recently for sale in NYC for around $465,000 (US). But as I say it’s all relevant as in the mid 90’s £7,500 was worth far more than it is 20 years on; just look at house prices in Edinburgh, London or NYC in that time… it’s all relevant. The pieces photographed are from Eustace’s Curated Room: Late 18th Century Chinese Elm Alter Table Ornamental Bronze Vessel Tsubusa Kato Vase Chamfered celadon glazed porcelain Tsubusa Kato Square Plate, 2014 celadon glazed porcelain Floral sculpture by PYRUS Botanicals These are a mixture of objects from The Scottish Gallery and from his own collection. #DavidEustace #photography #TheScottishGallery #photographs #series #international #Scottishart #JulieLawson #ScottishNationalPortraitGallery #StillLandscapeLife

UNEARTHED Stephen Bowers 5 - 29 September 2018 The theme of nature into pattern and pattern within nature is explored in the William Morris camouflage plate series, where samples of patterns from familiar and less familiar sources, variously referencing blue and white tropes and William Morris wallpapers, jostle for attention. Juxtaposed amongst these abstracted passages of decorative design are carefully painted cockatoos or parrots, which appear on each plate. ‘Surface Tension: the ceramic art of Stephen Bowers’ John Neylon, Beyond Bravura, Wakefield Press, 2013, p39 William Morris Tulip and Willow Fragment Plate (left) Blue Willow Shard Bowl (right) 2018 wheel-thrown white earthenware, under-glaze colours, clear glaze, on-glaze enamel decal to base (right sold) Photograph: Grant Hancock #StephenBowers #ceramics #Australia #TheScottishGallery #paint #Unearthed #mugs #vibrant #colours #wheelthrown #earthenware #glaze #underglaze #lustre #enamal #decal

STILL • LANDSCAPE • LIFE David Eustace 5 - 29 September 2018 Guy Peploe and David Eustace in conversation When were you first aware of the idea of individual taste? Taste I guess is just an opinion, and everyone’s is valid. It’s just something I became aware of: what appealed, something beautiful that sparked the imagination, not necessarily something that was meant to be beautiful but something that clicked and felt right. I’ve always known what’s felt right as it comes from within, but still it’s only ever my opinion. How would you describe your overarching aesthetic? For me there’s an unspoken voice from within that for a moment when all in front of you just feels connected, balanced and right. It’s as though the soul is content. Something made with love or the result of an industrial process, or quite simply by chance. It can be natural or man made it’s all about what fits and feels matched without trying too hard. It can be an ancient piece or something created only moments before. What matters is the balance, like a pair of bricks, side-by-side looking like a little house alongside a finely crafted piece of timeless Japanese porcelain. As a visual artist I see little difference between filing a camera frame or an empty room in a stately hall. It’s creating balance and connecting spaces. The artworks photographed are from Eustace’s Curated Room: James Cowie Still Life with Tanagra Figure pencil drawing 19.5 x 24 cms Gerald Leslie Brockhurst The Basque Boy, 1944 Lithograph 44 x 32 cms edition of 10 Gerald Leslie Brockhurst Head of Basque, 1944 Lithograph 42 x 32 cms edition of 10 James Cowie Figure with Apple and Vase Watercolour and conte 20.5 x 24.5 cms These are a mixture of pieces from The Scottish Gallery and from David's own collection. #DavidEustace #photography #TheScottishGallery #photographs #series #international #Scottishart #JulieLawson #ScottishNationalPortraitGallery #StillLandscapeLife

STILL • LANDSCAPE • LIFE⠀ ⠀ David Eustace⠀ ⠀ 5 - 29 September 2018⠀ ⠀ David Eustace is a photographer of international practice and repute who has worked across continents for over twenty-five years. The world through his camera lens is on occasion abstract; at times melancholic; always authentically seen and felt. ⠀ ⠀ In this exhibition, Eustace has brought together four portfolios of work – made in different places and at different times. What links them is indeed the overarching theme of time. ⠀ ⠀ In Bridge, seen in an instant and realised photographically over the course of one day, Eustace has found, in its accidental, painted, abraded, rusted and weathered surfaces, abstract art. ⠀ ⠀ In the series Mar a Bha, he responds intuitively to the tranquillity and timelessness of the landscape on the Isle of Harris, through the medium of a bygone age – photogravure. ⠀ ⠀ Polaroids comprises a single wall in New York observed over time, a subject constantly changing as layer is laid upon layer. Posters, notices and graffiti are to be seen added and removed and created is a palimpsest of disconnected fragments of words and images; the Babel of our times. ⠀ ⠀ Desert Lines continues to explore the theme of transience, the ancient but everchanging mountains cut through by roads are understood in one single unified vision.⠀ ⠀ JULIE LAWSON⠀ Senior Curator, Scottish National Portrait Gallery⠀ Editor of Studies in Photography⠀ ⠀ Desert Lines vii, 2010-2012⠀ Printed on 320gsm Hahnemühle Fine Art Archival Paper⠀ Edition of 20⠀ 24 x 30.5 cms⠀ ⠀ Mar a Bha vii, 2018⠀ printed on 250gsm Japanese bamboo paper⠀ edition of 12⠀ 40.6 x 50.8 cms⠀ ⠀ Bridge viii, 2017⠀ printed on 300gsm Archival Pigment paper⠀ edition of 8⠀ 81 x 106 cms⠀ ⠀ Polaroids, 2004⠀ Set of sixteen individual polaroids⠀ please contact The Gallery for more information⠀ ⠀ #DavidEustace #photography #TheScottishGallery #photographs #series #international #Scottishart #JulieLawson #ScottishNationalPortraitGallery #stilllandscapelife at The Scottish Gallery
