“Love Dan’s work and am the proud custodian of his painting ‘Violet Gold’ a view of Ordiquish and I love seeing it every time I go up and down the stairs.”
— Peter Reid – (Violet Gold, Acrylics on canvas)
Ar Cala Exhibition
June / July 2017
The Harbour had once been among the busiest fishing ports in Scotland, and subsequently had a ship building industry too. Both these had faded in recent times and this left echoes of these times in the architecture and erosion. Having been made redundant, I empathised with this situation and wanted to create a body of work that spoke to that story. The exhibition was very successful, with all works selling.
