Iona Light
By Colin Black

Mixed Media and Collage
Subject Matter
Reg. Number
49 x cm

This piece is part of a series by Colin Black connected to Iona, celebrating the scenic beauty of the island, its history and Christian its heritage. This landscape piece is dominated by the sky, which forms a cerulean background, partially covered with lightly-applied pink clouds and tinged with yellow at the upper edges to suggest a change in the light over Iona.

The moorland in the lower third is formed by a collage of strips, creating an undulating effect to suggest breaks in the terrain. Pale mauve strips indicate hills in the distance, while richer colours predominate in the foreground.

Colin Black studied Graphic Design at Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. He worked in London for fourteen years at major design practices before starting his teaching career. He is currently a member of staff at Leith School of Art and exhibits regularly at the Open Eye Gallery in Edinburgh.
