The work of Donald Urquhart is founded on a passion for, and knowledge of, the land. The approach being one of considered enquiry. The work can be characterised as highly formal in format, displaying an analytical edge, which has been referred to as "epic simplicity" - seeking to engage the viewer in a quiet, poetical discourse both about the landscape and our relationship to it.
'An Enlightened Stand', 1998
