20th April - 12 May 2018

The Fine Art Society in Edinburgh presents Anchored Under Red Rock, an exhibition of works from across the career of Devonshire-based artist Graham Rich.

Rich’s works range from large scale installations to small constructed scenes formed from the remnants of boats and objects he has found along the Devonshire coast. Often dwarfed against a backdrop of sea-worn paint and the marks left by maritime use, his carved motif of small sailing boats serve as symbols of hope and struggle against tribulation.

The exhibition, and one of the included works, take their title from the safe harbours of the red-rocked Devonshire coast, referencing a passage from T S Eliot’s The Waste Land:
'Come in under the shadow of this red rock
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.'
