Richard Bracken Artist


My work results from an ongoing personal exploration of the environment and the more remote parts of Scotland.

The best journeys are those taken on foot;  with or without a map, a long distance or a very short one.  Over new ground or through a place that I supposedly ‘know’, this process is the starting point.

I am interested in different approaches (including non-human ones) to understanding and interpreting the environment and beside personal experience and that of others, my research has led me to explore both scientific practice and folklore.

The work I make typically takes the form of sculptures, photographs or drawings.  Time, change and the human position in the landscape are my current focus.
