It has been a busy weekend with Friday evening spent at The Nomads Tent seeing the wonderful; She'koyokh klezmer and Balkan Band.
On Saturday, I returned to Edinburgh to catch the last hour of Robbie Bushe's exhibition 'Invasions and Excavations' at the Open Eye Gallery.
Robbies work, produced over the last eighteen months, not only explores the layers of the city, but also personal layers of family, politics and work.

Robbie's work has evolved over the decades from large canvases with perspective warped to catch all of the available angles of his visual narrative, to these new works that are incredibly detailed, a succession of vignettes and scenes.

These works are not only pulling together in the embrace of the composition a mass of emotion, action and thought, but also different genres of contemporary art and art tradition.
