Donald Urquhart was born in Perthshire and studied at Edinburgh College of Art where he is now a Reader in the School of Landscape Architecture. He was elected to the Royal Scottish Academy in 2008. At the heart of all of Urquhart’s work is an appreciation of landscape and a need to respond to it.
Each of the six landscapes combines a short two line poem juxtaposed with a painting. Each painting is made up of a coloured area of wall with two panels attached. One is a single colour and the other has a realistic painting of a scene relating to the poem. The artists hope that the combination of the short poem and the painting will remind patients, visitors and staff of walks in woods and be imaginary windows out of the hospital.
