Artist's description:

'North – Transmigration' captures the reality of nature on a Hebridean island, the toughness, grittiness of weather and atmosphere – also fear of nature and how it can feel impersonal. We observe it and wonder if we’re really a part of it, though of course we are.

The small figure on top of the cliff is Atzi Muramatsu, a composer/cellist who I collaborated with on the project.
Sitting on these cliffs on the north end of the island (as part of a geology tour we joined) he began to compose a piece for string quartet called ‘Gaea Metemphsychosis’.

This painting was made as part of a series during a residency on the Isle of Eigg in the Scottish Hebrides. I worked in collaboration with a poet and musician, exploring the landscape of this beautiful, inspiring island which is community-owned and relies solely on renewable fuel for the island's energy needs.
