The Why?s Man

"My art is place specific and people specific." George Wyllie

Back to Art... out of the gallery


(Colraine, 2000)

In putting himself forward for this commission, George Wyllie simply presented the idea of a large salmon.

Discussed the design with the commissioning group. Took their ideas and directions as to how a real salmon would look.
Then he created this huge version of those ideas. (The trees on the right give an indication of its size.)
