For this exhibition at the new Henderson Gallery Scottish artist Joyce Gunn Cairns showcases a key strand of her work: portrait heads of key figures in Scottish life. Inspired by Kaethe Kollwitz, Pat Douthwaite and Rembrandt, Cairns’ original subjects were writers including AL Kennedy, Ali Smith and Alexander McCall Smith, reflecting the artist’s love of poetry, but she has since broadened her focus to include people from many different fields.
