Collage on board (1948).
Tarbert is the main port and capital village of the Isle of Harris, Hebrides, Scotland.
This is a composite view from the South with jetty and ferry post; the kirk and white-washed cupola or bell-tower, and the houses.
Yates’s work as an architect very much informs his paintings and buildings often feature, but this exceptional print is more a study in building materials – their textures, shapes and colours.
There’s the smoothness of slate, the graininess of wood and the lattice segments of the tiles. There is geometry in roof, wall and mountain curvature and all of the colours – mottled gray, chalky white, wood brown and deep black – of the outer Hebridean Islands.
Giclée print, Limited Edition (1/750) on 310gms thick, 100% cotton rag.
Hand-numbered and hand-embossed.
