Moving south from Killin, we reach Balquhidder.
Here, it is said that Balquhidder was deemed a 'Thin Place' by St Angus in the 8th or 9th century. Thin Places were originally named by the Celts, who considered these areas environments in which the line between Heaven and Earth is thinner: drawing the two places closer together.
Moved by the beauty of Scottish landscape, it is easy to see why to this day, people consider these places to be highly spiritual. The idea of this dividing line is visualised between the mirroring reflections of the solid and permanent hill side, into a transitional and moving loch below. The sacred attachment to natural environment found from this story has inspired the contrasting use of colour and expressive mark making within my designs.
