John Busby, "Silent Landscape," Open Eye Gallery, Review

“My work is rooted in landscape and living birds and animals as they are part of it. I aim to show how creatures move and to express the visual delight they bring. I try to combine accuracy with artistry.”   John Busby

“Silent Landscape” is the perfect, poetic title for this fine retrospective of work by John Busby (1928 – 2015).

Paperwork 6, Edinburgh Ski Club, Review

In 2015, I reviewed Paperwork 2 for Edinburgh Guide... “do make your way to a Pop Up gallery at Venue 208, 2 Howe Street - an evocative collection of diverse yet complementary art.”

Following great success each year at the Festival Fringe, the sixth Paperwork exhibition has popped up at Venue 208 showcasing the visually exciting work of Marion Barron, Trevor Davies and Ruth Thomas. Their distinctive compositions - drawings, paintings, collages - share an artistic vocabulary in terms of line, pattern, shape, space, colour, tone and underlying reflective mood.
