• Alan Davie: Celtic Spirit II

Grangemouth-born Alan Davie (1920-2014) was a true polymath, working as a painter, jeweller, and jazz musician. The energy of Davie’s artistic output and his appetite for global cultural exploration made for a rich collaborative relationship with Dovecot Studios. In 2003 Dovecot weavers worked closely with Davie to create a series of works including a tapestry and a gun-tufted rug, Celtic Spirit II.

Inspired by primitive art and symbolism, Davie’s work is dynamic in its expressionist approach which is evident in the bold composition of this rug. The bright palette and patterns in Celtic Spirit II are resonant of great cultures, and translate beautifully to a rug of this considerable scale.
