"In Pursuit Of..." By Shona Kinloch, 1996 Taylor Street, University of Strathclyde Campus.

This sculptural mural by Shona Kinloch is installed on the wall of a student housing area within the student village of University Of Strathclyde. As you can see, a dog, cat and some birds are chasing one another across the brick wall of the building. The cat chases the bird, and the dog chases the cat, but the bird at the top has flown away to safety. The animals are made of bronze with a patina. They are modelled in low-relief, and their bright colour stands out strongly from the colour of the brick. Shona Kinloch has made a number of public artworks in Glasgow, including Sculptures at the Italian Centre and the Garnethill Lighting Project. The University Of Strathclyde has commissioned several public artworks for the campus, and some of the others can be seen in the rest of this Urban Trail.
