RIP George

Very sad news of the death of George Wyllie on Monday. The world and Scotland has lost a truly international artist, a man of vision and someone who made the world around him a better place.

Thanks George for having the courage to try and recover the purpose of art as a channel of understanding to some of the deeper truths of the world - and having no truck with the mad, hermetic language of the 'artworld'. This fellow artist salutes you!

We at 'NothingAboutUs' are pleased to have had the opportunity to present an evening in George's honour at Govan's Pearce Institute on 1st May as part of the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art.

Hope you are enjoying the new landscape wherever you are George
