Artist Talk: Roddy Buchanan
East Dunbartonshire based artist Roddy Buchanan’s work has been installed in five sites across the region. The works take inspiration from political activist and community organiser Thomas Muir, who lived in East Dunbartonshire in the late 18th Century. Roddy’s work involves sculptural route markers that act as new metaphors about the life and story of Thomas Muir. An edition of five concrete sculptures mimic the shape of a eucalyptus seedpod, or as Australians call them gumnuts.
