Exhibition: David Boyle- The Ghaist Drifter and Other Tales

Middle Room, Wasps Links Studios,
27 Aug – 9 Sep

Preview and Artist talk:   David will speak about his work at an exhibition preview on the afternoon of Saturday 26th August at 5.00pm. 

‘The Ghaist Drifter and Other Tales’ is a landlubber’s homage in paintings to the fisher folk of the North East of Scotland. It’s a vision of the men and women, boats, restless sea, vast skies through stone and steel, wood and currents of the imagination. It’s a wistful kind of surrealism that informs many of these nostalgic images of the sea and the little boats in which fishermen bartered with God and magic, forged friendships and risked their lives over many generations. The hardships of the women folk, those who gutted fish, mended nets and in some instance carried their husbands through the shallows to waiting fishing boats, is matched by their comradeship, songs and humour. All the paintings are related to the Moray coast with the occasional  nod towards Catalonia. It is a homage to the fisher folk who built the boats, sailed the northern seas and tended the home fires. 

The exhibition dates are  27th August – 9th September 2023 .  Open 10.00am-4.00pm            This exhibition is supported by Screwfix.
