In 1999, Scottish artist Paul Furneaux was awarded the Alastair Salvesen Travelling Award, allowing him to travel to Japan, where he trained in local printmaking techniques, with a particular focus on woodblock printing. Dovecot Tapestry Studios approached Furneaux after his return and selected three versions of the same print to be translated into a tapestry. These were then used by Master Weavers Douglas Grierson and David Cochrane to create Inner Landscape in 2003, with the final piece bearing aspects of all three versions. The artist’s signature is represented by a Japanese character placed above the weavers’ initials on the left hand side of the tapestry.
