Inspiration

Some years ago, we spent a fortnight, camping on the Black Isle. Regular visits to the Groam House museum, as well as various Celtic and Pictish sites, instilled a great interest in celtic art. Originally I painted this image on a large square canvas, and wondered how it would look on a smaller scale. It also gave me a new insight into linocutting techniques. The skills of craftsmen from the distant past are still as astonishing today.

The significance of the Beard pullers, is still a mystery, with different interpretations, in different cultures. I believe they appeared mainly in Ireland and in such documents as the Book of Kells. The interlacing images are incredibly difficult to recreate, as you have to make sure you get the 'unders' and 'overs' in the right place.
