Louise Welsh meets Duggie Fields

Novelist Louise Welsh meets artist Duggie Fields in a recreation of his London flat and studio, which is now on show in Glasgow.

The writer Louise Welsh meets the artist Duggie Fields.

Louise lives in Glasgow and is the author of eight novels, including The Cutting Room, Naming the Bones, and the Plague Times trilogy, which imagines a world ravaged by a pandemic.

Duggie studied at the Chelsea School of Art in the 1960s, and is known for his colourful geometric canvases, inspired by pop and classical culture. For the past 50 years, he has lived and worked in the same Earls Court flat- which he once shared with Syd Barrett, a founding member of Pink Floyd. A re-creation of the flat is currently on show in Glasgow - complete with paint-spattered floor, furniture, and life-sized photographs of the walls, covered in art-works.

Producer Clare Walker.
