Welcome to miles & miles of beauty astounding
FAILTE GU MILTEAN AGUS MILTEAN DE BHÒIDHCHE ANABARRACH
There are few places in the developed world where people are able to live intimately with nature in it's most elemental and awe inspiring forms; where there is true freedom in a land of no beaten tracks; where it is possible to be alone with wildness and where every footstep is a journey into a world of colour, texture and life. I consider myself uniquely privileged to have grown up in one of those rare places - the Lewis moor where I spent my childhood summers. This unique landscape has been at the heart of my work for over thirty years.
I have adopted Mamba as an acronym for the moor because it can be described as miles and miles of beauty astounding. Mamba has the sound of a dance - the rhythm of life itself.
Mamba - The Exhibition, is a visual dance through the history and nature of the moor. I have created images incorporating photography, watercolour and drawing, blended with the tapestries that include colours hand-dyed from the mosses, lichens and plants of moorland.
MAMBA The Exhibition can be seen at an Lanntair, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, from Monday 7th July. Further information at www.lanntair.com.
