ground

July 2-23. Admission free. The Scottish Gallery, 16 Dundas Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6HZ.

Jake Harvey creates sculptures imbued with a sense of stillness and simplicity. He carves in granite, basalt, marble and limestone, often placing the simple abstract forms directly on the wall or floor. The relationship of man to the earth, in particular the shaping of the earth by man, increasingly occupies the artist and is reflected in his work.
