St Margaret’s Loch digital print by The Lindstrom Effect.
This print can be viewed as half of a dytich, the other half is a print called The Commie Pool. Both prints were created at the same time and though very different in style, the locations shown are very close and so demonstrate’s Edinburgh’s history and architectural diversity.
St Margaret’s Loch with St Anthony’s Chapel in the distance was chosen by the artist partly because it’s near where he currently lives and so passes it most days, but also because its an intriguing place. The chapel is now just a ruin but is so perfectly placed on that spot, both when you’re up looking out and when you’re at the loch looking up. The artist created a simplified version of the scene as a digital print, with a vintage cloth overlay to add depth and a feeling of texture familiar to those who have visited the loch on a winter’s day.
Created byThe Lindstrom Effect for the “Crag & Tale” exhibition, for which we encouraged illustrators to look at Edinburgh from a different perspective. Curated by Nicky Brooks at the Red Door Gallery you can read more about this exhibition here.
