In Time with the Wind

IN TIME WITH THE WIND Solo exhibition 2006

Artist's book on Blair Thomson.

Foreword - by Bruce Peter (lecturer, Glasgow School of Art, UK)

'To walk beneath these sublime structures, where they remain today, is to be confronted with cast iron and timber engineering at its most raw and elemental; rusting pillars, caked with seaweed and barnacles at the tide line, timber decking covered in algae on its underside – and, in the middle distance, the constant ebb and flow of the sea.'

Essay from 'In Time with the Wind'

T.S. Eliot

How cold the wind.
