Artist's description:

Emptiness, isolation, separation, seclusion, space, opening, volume and quantity are all words that McKay uses to express the feeling of standing on a British beach, gazing across the sea as an inner city urban visitor.

He states the fact that during the mid-19th century the introduction of the railways brought people from British industrial cities to our seaside towns. Now our airports take them away.

This on-going structured project to visit British seaside towns between 2011 and the present has produced a wealth of visual observational documentation. In the form of paint and print, his work aims to explore the increased emptiness and isolation during these rival times of overseas package holidays. The British coastal resort is for many presently simply only a day trip.
