Chris Bushe: Iona

15 - 25 JUNE

"For a short period last summer in between lockdowns we were allowed to leave Edinburgh and travel legally within Scotland so we happily escaped over to Mull and Iona. 

Both islands are remarkable and inspiring, but Iona which is a very unique place in the best of times, seemed particularly magical when you visit there in the middle of the horrific year that we have all just endured - all its qualities seemed amplified. 

Whether you are spiritual or not, when you set foot off the ferry onto the island you cannot help but feel somehow uplifted and at peace. The perfect beaches, emerald green seas and the wonderful panoramic views back over to Mull and Staffa always seem to me to be in perfect balance with each other.

Many generations of painters from Francis Cadell, Samuel Peploe, Sir  D.Y. Cameron and George Houston to the present day have visited Iona to paint and celebrate its beauty and special atmosphere, and I am sure many more will be drawn to the island and continue to paint it. This series of paintings is my attempt to reflect the joy and fortune I felt at being able to escape the city and spend time somewhere so unique before lockdown trapped us all again!"
