A look inside Edinburgh’s A-listed India Buildings. Summer 2016 presented an opportunity to performers from around the art spectrum to converge at the Buildings. Wave after Wave curated a mixed media group show in the Rotunda’s gallery that showcased local and international artists.

Video Art appeals on many different levels and can draw a crowd when projected at live events. Early last Autumn I curated a moving image party at the Berwick Film Festival Fringe w/ help from the talented Andy McGregor. He beamed his motion art, strewn w/ my own digitised artworks, directly onto a whitewashed courtyard wall. The [BYOB] event ran late into the night when many festival attendees had gathered to party to a neuro hop soundtrack.

On return to Edinburgh in 2015, I directed a collaborative mixed media show called Wave after Wave. It was here at the Whitespace gallery that the artworks were noticed by video artist Roddy McNeil who collectively w/ Shaun Taylor goes by the name Second Space. A collaboration enabled the two video artists to remix my exhibition artworks for projection at Second Space events where literary themes merge w/ modern trends to create a new frontier in the Visual Arts.

Cyanotype Prints

Cyanotype Prints

Created in a darkroom environment in a wine cellar, these images were blazed onto the wood when the photo emulsion coating reacted to the UV light beam.

Grangemouth

A landscape that shows Grangemouth consumed by the wilderness in a future when Scotland no longer relies on fossil fuels. My new body of work explores abandonment, in the same way that ancient Mayan settlements were eventually reclaimed by the rainforest, and the deindustrialisation that caused Detroit’s urban decay, only in a Northern setting.

Sea Blaze

Once in a while you get to spectate blazing sunsets along the Berwickshire coast. Pink sky at night… I find the best ones are those looking up the rocky shoreline towards Eyemouth. The district is steeped in folklore and legend. Grey seal colonies provide the strange soundtrack at dusk. These quick, colourful, creations are the antidote to the geometric Townscapes I create at the Garret.
