Pride of Paisley 2016

Ramble -  Between the waters and the roads, we move and live.

One of 25 artists selected by competition for Paisley First public art trail to paint a life-sized sculptural lion to celebrate the town and its history, to bring local people and visitors to Paisley and using art and culture to regenerate the town centre. My submission Ramble  has a hand-painted map of Paisley creating patterns like a blanket of history wrapped tight round its body. My starting point was the waterways which have shaped the landscape, industry and growth of the town. Throughout its history from the 6th Century the town has changed and grown and this map has each waterway and road around and in and out of Paisley.

The map is not for directional purposes or to highlight points of interest but more akin to an intricacy of threads winding their way, passing waterways and green spaces and connecting communities: Ralston, Williamsburgh, Foxbar, Gockston, Ferguslie, Castlehead, Gleniffer and more. I hope the artwork is an opportunity for townsfolk to view the full span of their town, as they find familiar spaces, their street, their home and a sense of pride within the boundaries of this historic place.
