• Jock McFadyen: Mallaig
    Jock McFadyen, Dovecot Studios, Keith Hunter

In 2021 Dovecot Studios collaborated with Jock McFadyen RSA on The Mallaig Commission –  to create a major new artwork that interpreted the Scottish artist’s gritty, urban vision through the dramatic sensuality of fine art textile. McFadyen expresses a dark and romantic fascination with Scotland’s urban landscape in his work, which Dovecot was keen to explore by drawing on the Studios’ expertise in gun-tufted rugs and the effects of colour blending.

McFadyen and Dovecot selected the painting Mallaig 2, 2018 as the starting point for the collaboration. The intense inky blues in this work are particularly suited to being transformed by the depth of colour and the complex undertones that Dovecot’s skilled approach to gun-tufting can achieve. 

Mallaig is available in a limited edition of three artworks plus the initial Artist Proof. the Artist proof is currently available.
