Robert Burns Birthplace Museum
Ayr, Scotland

ARTRUIST in Edinburgh announces a new exhibition and I am happy to take part with sculpture BURNS, my portrait of the poet:

David-Begbie-BURNS-portrait-steel
”Next February, in the wake of Hogmanay and a month of Burns suppers, when there is such a strong emphasis on tradition and the poetry of Burns, we aim to shift the focus. From February to June 2015, we will show an exhibition which explores his appearance. We all think we know what he looked like, primarily because of the ubiquitous Nasmyth portrait – and even the derivative Archibald Skirving portrait which was drawn well after Burns died. Less well publicised is the fact that Robert Burns himself believed that a miniature executed by Alexander Reid, an unknown local artist, offered the best likeness. We are very fortunate that, courtesy of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery where it is normally to be found, this work will be on display at the Museum for the duration of the exhibition. Also included in the show will be a life sized model of Burns’s head, reconstructed by forensic scientists from the University of Dundee.”

Other confirmed artists are: Alison Buckle, Calum Colvin, Rosie Dahlstrom, Graham Fagen, Nina Fowler, Tom Gallant, Shannon Laing, The Little Artists, David Mach, Harland Miller, Paul Morrison, Alexander Newley, Deirdre Nicholls, Mark Powell, Adrian Wiszniewski.

Opera Opulence at Hanover Grange

with Soprano Christina Collier and Tenor Gilles San Juan

Hanover Grange, Jamaica: Opera Opulence

Who would have guessed it?
That when Theresa and Andrew Roberts designed and built Hanover Grange, Montego Bay, Jamaica, they inadvertently incorporated an opera hall into the building to accompany my commissioned sculptures STATU I and II plus NUWDSTILL which can all be seen in this photo. Apparently, as another bonus, the acoustics are superb!
The mellifluous voice of the evening’s opera singers resonated through Hanover Grange. Read more about Hanover Grange, Jamaica, read the opera article in Jamaica Observer or watch the Opera Opulence video.

In the picture: STATU I and STATU II (unique sculpture in steelmesh left and right, approx. 2 metres height), NUWDSTILL (limited edition steel panel, ca.1,50 metres height, centred), wall-mounted.
