Neil Macdonald PAI RGI RSW
I am drawn to locations which exert historic and mythic presence. I am particularly engaged with Scottish history and the evidence of its previous peoples.
I explore the lyrical narrative of natural sites and strong bold shapes offered by castles, churches, old townships and harbours. I do this through distortion of perspective, invention and editing, aiming to capture an essence of the structure or place. In some pieces topographic accuracy is replaced by an imaginative response to the subject.
