Lorraine Lamonds Stained Glass Installation

We had the privilege of making a podcast of glasgow artist Lorraine Lamond's recent installation of her Stained Glass windows in Christ the King Church, Kingspark, Glasgow.
This is the first window in a series of three with the other two still in creation. Lorraine is one of Scotlands leading Stained Glass Artists.
The work was installed by David and Scott from Scottish Glass Studio.

WhiteHouse@Burrell House Video

Here is a video documentation of the Mark Campbell & Craig Peacock show at Sir William Burrell's former family home. We hope it will also highlight the state of the House has been left to fall into over the years by the council.
Although the current owner is working with historic scotland they have it on the market and it should be bought back by the council, restored and made into a West End Burrell.

Burrell House Show - Mark Campbell & Craig Peacock

Thanks again to all who came to the show which was very busy and a well recieved show.
We were only disappointed that no-one officially from the GI came along to see the show and think they missed a good PR opportunity as Sir William Burrell donated more than two hundred works for the original Glasgow International Exhibition in 1903. And we were the first artists to have work hung in Burrells house since the great man himself lived there. Click on the Photos link at the side to see all the photos from the House.
It's also a scandal that Burrell's House has been left by various councils over the years to fall into such disrepair and then to be sold off, although I presume he left it to the People of Glasgow on his death. The house is now in private ownership and whilst working with Historic Scotland the present owner has the House up for sale. The house should be bought back by the council and with various restoration agencies be restored to its original state and made into a West End Burrell as less than a quarter of his work is ever on display in Pollok Park. So come on Glasgow show a little initiative and take this treasure back Burrell gave his entire collection plus money to build the Burrell Collection yet the city fathers have  neither the will or the wit to show the same courtesy.

a God Given Light

An Exhibition of new work by 


Mark Campbell's work takes on the notion of the nurture of children and the images and propogandic messages they are subjected to and indoctrinated with from religions and the media.
With 'Jelevision' he uses the idea of a greenhouse, where seeds are normally germinated by the light, to express this with his images etched and fired onto the glass. The symbolic metaphors are throughout the work i.e he uses the image of a rabbit taken from a Hamas Childrens Television programme called 'Pioneers of Tomorrow’ where adults dressed as cartoon animals are the stars and where each one is eventually killed by the israelis with the young children praying for their demise, and also with the bible reference on the gun sight (US
troops had been fighting in afghanistan and Iraq using guns with scripture quoted references on their scopes) bringing the idea of modern day crusaders.
The neon text work simply speaks for its self.


Art and Divinity are thoughtful abstractions that deal with the aesthetic
and esoteric. They are both relative to our perceptions, feelings and needs. One seeks the sublime the other purpose. In truth they have never been apart, each influencing the evolution of concepts, ideas and notions of our present time and place.
The work for ‘a god given light’ was cumulative of thought, time and process. They are imaginations, notations, where lines and marks become formal objects. Representations of sky and sea, one tumultuous the other calm, subjective, emotive, where light begins to prevail, in hope and its own radiant glory.
