Robin Wheelaghan: drawings, prints and bronzes

This fish sings

Robin Wheelaghan: drawings, prints and bronzes

Open: Friday 16 to Sunday 25 September              11am to 3pm

Robin Wheelaghan’s first solo show includes drawings from a series of sketchbooks made over the past six years, new prints and palm-sized bronze fish and eels. Surfacing themes in these narrative works repeat and reform: the sea and the river, fish, boats, the eel, the garden, song. Loss. Healing. Personal mythologies. Faith. Transition—light to shadow. Secrets, miracles, love, the end of love. Place. The body. The broken body. Fathers, mothers. Family. The gift. Transformation. Rivers. Dogs.

Robin lives in Leith and studied art in Falmouth, both places of the sea.
