Side nan Seachd Sian (The Weather of the Seven Elements)

Description:

Eoghann MacColl describes his interest in landscape and atmosphere in his own words- " While travelling up and down the country the view-point changes from one place to the next. From memory and observational drawing I try to capture our climate and atmosphere. The changing light, the transience or the way definition comes and goes. It is a collection of views. Sometimes Ailsa Craig is clearly there, then it is lost, bleached out in the sunshine or smudged in a smirr of rain".

MacColl was born in Inverness.  He studied at Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art and Design in Dundee and then in Barcelona.  He now lives in Ayrshire.
