That Space between Edinburgh & Glasgow

That Space between Edinburgh & Glasgow

Douglas Cook

'That Space between Edinburgh & Glasgow' is a screen print based on cultural areas of my home found in the space between Edinburgh and Glasgow. My works look at the juxtaposition of the city commuters with the areas previous industrial background, and the changes that have occurred, as seen from the viewpoint of the canal that joins the two cities. Changes that have affected my family and the communities which I am worried will become forgotten between these two powerful cities. It is the heritage and lifestyle of these communities that I honour and celebrate through my work.
