Robert Callender pilgrimage
It has most certainly been a long week waiting for Friday to arrive! That is since I discovered that the work of my new favourite artist the late Robert Callender was on display at the Lochgelly Centre in Fife. The travelling retrospective of Callenders work, 'A2B - An Artists Journey', was curated by Robert and his wife the artist Elizabeth Ogilvie.
I am afraid I will fail dismally describing to you how moved I felt coming face to face with artworks that I had already fallen in love with when I viewed them in a book. A picture book is but a mere taste of the whole for it cannot convey scale, texture, smell, sensitivity or passion. This exhibition, although small, transfered all these elements to me and more! I left the exhibition hungry hoping there may be other opportunities in the future to see more of Roberts work and a fire in my belly to create.
