The Open Eye Gallery is pleased to have started working with acclaimed Scottish artist and writer Alasdair Gray. We are currently exhibiting this important, early panel painting, A Charm against Serpents. Painted in 1962, almost 20 years before the publication of his first novel, Lanark, the work comprises a collage of nine panels which Gray has described as ‘all improvised for fun’. Gray's experience as a muralist is clear in the epic scale of the fantastical composition.
This is a rare opportunity to view the significant work in Edinburgh. The painting will be on show until 30 October.
