Northlight Exhibition, now with added tractors

Headhunter (Antisyzygy), exhibition poster.

Northlight Exhibition, now with added tractors!

There are a few days remaining to see some recent work in the windows of Northlight gallery in Stromness. On show are a selection of paintings and drawings on a variety of themes – all inspired by Orcadian history and culture. Plus photographs of tractors.

The work includes an acrylic painting inspired by the story of Jack Renton, the so-called “White Headhunter” (pictured above). This painting features centrally in a short animated film on the subject of art and inspiration called Doors Open, which you can watch on YouTube.

Also on show are a drawing of Esther Richan (eater of a £50 note), an angry cartoon on the subject of climate change, a badly drawn picture of George Mackay Brown and some animation still-frames from The Fairy Dance.

Thanks to the kindness of Northlight curator Cary Welling, an expert photographer and printer, you can also see some long-exposure hand-held photographs of the recent Kirkwall Tractor Run. Scores of tractors were lit up like Christmas trees and driven around Kirkwall, to the delight of young Orcadian tractor fanatics.
