The Chambers of the North.

Sula Sgeir is a true Atlantic outlier, a remote island 18 miles west of the island of North Rona. It is home to 5,000 breeding pairs of gannet and colonies of many other sea bird species. Brenhilda, sister of St Ronan of Iona, lived and died alone on the island. After her death, her remains were found in a bothy, with the nest of a shag tucked in her ribcage.

Richard James PortraitRichard James was born in 1963 in Northampton. He has works in private collections all over the UK and US. Much of his work makes strong use of astronomical association: an attempt to recognise the greater mystery inherent in the commonplace fragments of exhausted life. He strives to offer glimpses of the unknown, to uncover fragments of hidden mystery and explore the subliminal landscape concealed by the everyday.
