David Lockhart

Over the next ten weeks, I am working in Benarty Primary School in Fife, as part of a project highlighting the work of the late Jennie Lee.
Earlier this week I went into the school for a meeting and in the reception area was this large 19 x 12 foot mural 'Many Mansions' based on a biblical text 'In my fathers house are many mansions . . .' 1961. Designed and executed for the new school building by artist and musician David Lockhart (1922-2014).
I like to think of it as being about the many doors that open to you when you educate yourself, or the way you can visit different times, people and places in your thirst for knowledge.
