Gouache on paper
From a series of studies of this distinctive mountain in the Scottish Highlands.
‘Suilven rolls round and shoulders itself
Up from and out of the earth
There are no fossils in these rocks
For they predate cellular life’
These lines begin Alan Riach‘s poem written especially for the artists – they seem to fit the three paintings of Suilven just perfectly, don’t they? The full poem’s in the gallery, a special treat for gallery visitors.
