Whilst grounded in the disciplines of drawing and painting, Donald Urquhart's practice has diversified in recent year to encompass the use of a wide range of media including audio, text, video and photography. It is work that can be characterised as being reductive and highly formal, what has been referred to as "epic simplicity", always seeking to engage the viewer in a quiet and poetical dialogue.
