I live in the Scottish Highlands, 15 miles north west of Inverness. The pace here is unhurried and there is a strong sense of history and heritage in every village and moorland glen; a landscape of close-shaven heathers and trees shaped by wind and time.
In an age of noise, distraction and technology, I am ever curious about those moments of clarity, when all the stresses and strains of our daily lives simply ebb away and we are left with silence amidst the chaos.
Carrie Fertig, Installation & Performance Artist in Flame-worked Glass – ‘I want to thank the amazing, sensitive, and full-of-compassion invigilator at Inverness Museum and Art Gallery. I am so deeply fortunate to have Lar MacGregor to guide visitors in whatever way they wish to experience this work.’
Ian McKay, Editor of Art North Magazine – ‘I’ve recently seen some new work that Lar‘s been developing with disposable plastics, and it really surpasses anything else that I’ve seen in this vein. Try and get a look at her plastic/kelp work. A fascinating kinetic use of materials that works on a multitude of levels. So much of what I see from a great many working with the detritus of our culture is pretty one-dimensional in comparison.’
