Artist - Alan Richmond

Available in the Gallery

The Highlands and Islands of Scotland and the reminiscent landscapes imagined in the worn paintwork of the abandoned boats and buildings found in these special places, inspire my semi-abstract landscapes.

The idea behind the work is to create images strongly reminiscent and evocative of the landscape, rather than a literal depiction of it, and just as the process of weathering occurs over a period of time so the paintings require taking time to absorb what you see, as they are rarely intended to be immediately apparent.

I am a self taught artist, and for many years have been working in the WASPS studios in Selkirk.
