Scotland's most creative revolutionary
Ian Hamilton at Goma GoMA showcases its collection of works by renowned Scottish sculptor, poet and visual artist Ian Hamilton Finlay, who was known for his love of the three Ps: prints, puns and portmanteaus.

Ian Hamilton Finlay
Finlay's art


Finlay was one of Scotland's most prominent exports. Born in the Bahamas his work is prolific, modern, clever. His work spans from out and indoor installations, to prints, cards, and sculpture - all of which can be found at the museum.

Glasgow is paying homage to the artist who questioned the idea of power through his work. Although not blatantly an anarchist, his somewhat 'fun' work is evidently layered, and, like most artists, there is always another interpretation.

When GoMA will be displaying Finlay's work until March next year, so there's plenty of time to muse over his sculptures, even if you don't 'get' it.
