Alan Davie dies at 93


Alan Davie, one of Scotland's most respected painters of the post-war era, has died at 93.

Throughout his life, Davie obsessively drew and paintied, producing paintings of startling originality, vitality and daring. Combining imagery derived from different world cultures with a love of music and language, Davie's paintings are a complex yet joyous celebration of creativity that combine the expressive freedom of abstraction with a wealth of signs, symbols and words.

James Hyman worked with Davie on a number of exhibitions and publications, including 'The Shaman's Enigma'.
