Calum Colvin RSA is currently celebrating some forty years as a working artist. In that time he has gained a stellar reputation that is both national and international. In recognition of this achievement Tom Normand HRSA has completed a study of Colvin’s photography titled The Constructed Worlds of Calum Colvin: Symbol, Allegory, Myth. This book is a thematic exploration of Colvin’s photography; recognising its complexity, intrigue, erudition and humour.

In appreciation of this occasion the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture is pleased to present this exhibition of Calum Colvin’s art. In part a selected retrospective, in part a review of highlights from his oeuvre, this exhibition offers a survey of some of the finest photographs that Colvin has produced. These works reflect upon the conditions of culture in Scotland, the tangled character of contemporary society, and the potential catastrophe that surrounds human ambitions. Colvin’s constructed worlds, realised as effervescent photographs, explore the precarious nature of our world: mixing pathos with humour, intelligence with passion, and exposition with revelation. These are photographs that captivate, entertain and fascinate in equal measure.
