Red rock spires and walls beneath a perturbed sky or rose-coloured clouds contorting in their passage across a blue sky. A hidden and unvisited region, a source of mysteries and rivers with underground passages where the borders and physical laws of our surface world are subverted. Here the fairies who wash their clothes with golden rods can appear, possessed of riches in their sparkling cleanliness.


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.
