Hugh Buchanan | Capital City

A catalogue to accompany Hugh Buchanan's December 2019 exhibition Capital City. An exploration of the character of Edinburgh, viewed through the multiplicity of its capitals and columns. The Classical tradition of the city is present in the proportion and detail of so many of Edinburgh’s great buildings, but light, or the lack of it, defines the city’s character. Buchanan’s palette, the servant of light, is timeless: he rejoices in gloomy veils of time as well as in contemporary tungsten, neon, or clear daylight.
