Exploring Celtic Culture

Warsaw's Foksal Gallery is hosting an exhibition of works by two contemporary Scottish artists, Alexander Hamilton and Richard Ashrowan. The exhibition, entitled Blue Flora Celtica-Kinloch Rannoch ~ Fingal's Cave, alludes to Celtic traditions in the culture of the northern parts of Britain and Ireland.

Hamilton is exhibiting cyanotype works, a type of non-camera photogravure based on the photosensitivity of cyanide compounds-depicting plants from northern Scotland, highlighting their mythical, Celtic significance. At the same time, visitors to the exhibition can watch a movie by Ashrowan that shows the landscapes and legends of the north with unseen, almost extraterrestrial phenomena. The places include Fingal's Cave on the rocky and now uninhabited Staffa island, northwest of mainland Scotland.
