Ken DonaldTime and Tide
Ken Donald is one of that small group of Scottish artists for whom the abstract image has an abiding appeal – their numbers are few and the recent death of Philip Reeves further diminished them.
Working mainly in collage, the pieces he has produced for the exhibition Time & Tide at the Billcliffe Gallery reflect a continuing fascination for the natural growth and decay cycles of Nature…and an extended stay in the Azores Islands, and the constant proximity of the Atlantic Ocean, remains an abiding influence.
Donald has shown with Roger Billcliffe for over twenty years, complementing other solo shows across the UK, and in Ireland and Portugal. Portugal has had a distinct influence on his work, which has been rewarded by purchases for its national collections, adding to those in companies such as Unilever and private collections across Europe.
