We are delighted to have this new collection of paintings by David Humphreys inspired by his long association with the Outer Hebrides. Half Scottish by birth, David has roamed the islands by land and sea for over forty years. He was a frequent traveller on the Marguerite, a converted classic, fishing boat which explored the islands, as well as spending the long summer days staying with his cousin near Grand Bernera, an archaeological site and home of the Lewis Chessmen.
These new works are a distillation of those experiences. David captures the northern light of the endless summer days, reflecting off the brilliant white sands. He responds to the purity and history of the islands. The vast sweeps of deserted beaches running into sheltered coves, the ancient hills swathed in mist, the bare rocks, coarse grass and whitewashed cottages hugging the shore or nestled behind an outcrop of rock. With his luminous but restrained palette, his feeling for rhythm and form, Humphreys celebrates the land as a life force.
