Dreich

June 8 — 22, 2018

DREICH comprises a body of work created during and after Brian’s travels over several artist residencies in Norway, Shetland and Finland from July 2017 — March 2018. These residencies were undertaken for the most part in quiet isolation in remote studios on islands and lighthouses where the element of water was an inescapable recurring theme. From violent gales in Shetland, to calm ripples in the Finnish archipelago, the grey mist of the Baltic and the clear salty air of the Victorian coastline - DREICH is an exploration of the commonality of water, and the differences and contrasts brought on by wind, weather and light.

Thanks to Off the Kerb gallery for their continued support and assistance; La Wayaka Current, Shetland Amenity Trust and AARK residency for offering stunning and inspirational creative spaces; and to my friends and family, for putting up with my stubbornness and constantly itchy feet.
