The Parish Church of St Cuthbert presents the expansive, large-scale painting Lake Tekapo by renowned Scottish artist Adrian Wiszniewski.

Incorporating his style of densely patterned picture surfaces, covered with marks and movement, Lake Tekapo is spread over 6 metre-long panels. This immersive artwork by Wiszniewski – one of the group of Glasgow-based artists who led the revival of Scottish figurative painting – transports the viewer into the tranquil surroundings of this New Zealand lake scene.

St Cuthbert’s sits on the oldest Christian site in Edinburgh dating back to 675AD. The current church dates to 1894 and includes a spectacular Tiffany window, located alongside Wiszniewski’s work.
