Inspired by Richard Demarco's current exhibition of prints, 'The Road to Meikle Seggie'
|Richard Demarco - The Road to Meikle Seggie|
The poignancy of the open road inviting new beginnings
Of rough, twisted and looping roads signifying personal travels in life, of endings or the possibilities of new directions
The sadness, happiness, apprehension, fear, joy of travelling
Of being in Moffat and the sense of its place. Half way between Carlisle and Edinburgh, a settled place since Roman marched in and through, a town whose road loop over the shoulders of the embracing hills but which sits in a cul de sac of a glen in whose upper reaches is the celebrated Grey Mare's Tail waterfall.
A staging post for changing horses.
|Richard Demarco and Joseph Beuys in Edinburgh 1970|
