Biography of the Scottish outsider poet who chose to be silent, Angus McPhee.
Angus MacPhee (1916–1997) was a Scottish Outsider Artist, who lived as a young man on the island of South Uist. He made his art by weaving found vegetation, such as grasses, into extraordinary garments. He created most of his work whilst in the Craig Dunain Hospital near Inverness. He chose not to speak for 50 years.
This book was written by an art therapist, Joyce Laing, the individual who safeguarded ‘outsider art’ and created The Scottish Collection of Art Extraordinary from the many years Joyce gathered and conserved such rare examples of ‘outsider art’.
