Recent Additions

First Light 2005
(The University of St Andrews collection)

Being represented in National and International collections is a great acolade to an artist and also of course an opportunity to show work to a wide audience. Iain's work is part of many National Museum collections in the United Kingdom including the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Birmingham City Museum & Art Gallery and the Collection of the Scottish Government, and he has had recent pieces including 'Erribol' (2009) and 'Chamber #66' (2007) join the National Galleries of Scotland collection in 2010. Notable private UK collectors of Iain's work include Sir Elton John and The Pet Shop Boys.

Most recently, Iain was privileged in 2011 to have several pieces purchased for the special collection at The University of St Andrews, including 'Outlands' and 'First Light' from his 2005 LAND'S END/CAPE WRATH project, along with work from his 2007 series DARKEDEN.

In 2011, Iain was delighted to have four of his pieces, including the diptych 'Part', join the collection of The Henry Gallery at
The University of Washington, Seattle.
