The Agly

Oil on canvas
Stretched, unframed
61 x 50cm

The turquoise sculptress River Agly has formed a rough and moving relief, the Gorges de Galamus; carved for two hundred million years out of rare dolomitic limestone from the Black Jurassic that has arisen from her springs. The painting is a study of stones, a close reading of the water.


John Slavin

Artist Statement: The fire of light and the breath of air, the depths of land and the dance of trees make landscape a fantastic reality through which life can wander or surge with the freedom of a dreamer. I sit and draw the nature that has come to be manifest in an aesthetic display far removed from chaos or system or motive. My pencil contains my box of paints as my heart and eye contain a love for the mountain. Member: Society of Scottish Artists and Aberdeen Artists Society.
