Exhibition: The Gruagach Solais by Claire Hewitt
Highland Perthshire is a land rich in story and ancient lore deeply connected to its natural environment. The lifeblood that flows through this land are the waters that create the River Tay, without which the trees, birds, wild beings of earth, water and air would not survive.
Claire Hewitt’s images are a response to the abundant natural and mythological landscape around her. From magical salmon to wild faerie cattle women, each image holds, like water, a memory of the most ancient of stories and the spirit of the place. The Gruagach Solais was a wise spirit of the blacksmith's fire, a spark of inspiration and wisdom taken from a Gaelic poem in Highland Perthshire.
