Westminster No More


High White Light, an exhibition about Scotland’s identity was opened by our First Minister, Alex Salmond MSP and featured works by some of the country’s most collectable contemporary artists including Calum Colvin, John Bellany and John Byrne. As curator and one of the exhibiting artists, it was an opportunity to create the challenging political portrait, ‘Westminster No More’ which depicts the First Minister smiling in front of The Houses of Parliament, his face adorned with ticker-tape references to Iraq, Afghanistan, Trident and Scottish Independence. Despite its controversial nature, I’m delighted to say the painting appealed to The First Minister who bought it for his private collection.
