THE RA PYRAMID

I've added to my growing collection of unhung artworks with this etching, which I bought in March but have only just got around to having framed.  It's of Ailsa Craig, which I remember seeing for the first time when I was camping on the Isle of Arran as a student.  Its shape fascinated me then and still does now, and presumably Norman Ackroyd RA in 1996 when he made this etching as part of a series he began more than 40 years ago to chart the most outlying areas of the British Isles.  Images of Norman's work are all over the internet but a good place to start is his own site: normanackroyd.com.
