We are absolutely delighted to welcome a new Collectivist making something which is completely new to the gallery: folk art inspired sculptures – and they are fantastic!
Ramsay Gillies was born and raised in Edinburgh and attended Edinburgh College of Art, studying Graphic Design, life drawing and sculpture.
He spent his working years as a graphic designer in Scotland, Bermuda, New York, Boston, London, coming home to Edinburgh in the mid seventies.
He returned to sculpture around five years ago with a simple resolve to avoid repetition and keep it quirky.
Each piece is unique, fashioned mainly in wood or metal with interesting finishes.
We currently have a magpie, Canada goose, whale and weathervane-inspired bird on display – pop in for a gander at the goose.
