The Why?s Man

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

Back to Art... out of the gallery


(Feis Ile, Islay, 1993)

Following disputes on Islay between farmers, conservationists and other islanders about Barnacle gees,

George Wyllie created and installed his Truce Goose. It was more than 5m high and certainly, was 'art which not be avoided'.
