Many of his creations were burnt or left in compost heaps often by Macphee himself. The crofters of South Uist were experts at weaving marram grass to tack their horses, and it becomes obvious that in Macphee's sculptures there is a Adidas Gazelle Indoor Black And Orange vein of utter homesickness. At the same time, he changes a pragmatic use of local materials into a supremely useless, completely aesthetic technique.

most telling similarity is that Macphee clearly did not think of what he did as art.
Joyce Laing who would go on to found Art Extraordinary in Pittenweem with Tom McGrath, the founder of the Third Eye Centre in Glasgow and a collaborator with Jimmy Boyle, were touring Scotland to look for examples of "Outsider Art". The term had been coined by the French collector and art theorist Jean Dubuffet. His phrase was "art brut" literally "raw art" and Adidas Gazelle Trainers Navy Blue
upied by the British during the war to counter German naval operations. And something happened to Macphee. Retrospective medical diagnoses especially psychological ones are a hazardous business, and Hutchison is right to stick with what was diagnosed at the time: schizophrenia. Macphee became almost catatonic. He refused to speak and seemed incapable of choice or action. He was eventually transferred to the mental hospital in Inverness, Craig Dunain, in 1946, and spent nearly the next 50 years there. It was in the grounds of the hospital, and on their therapeutic farm, that he started to weave the strange sculptures on which his fame now rests. The discovery of Macphee's art was pure chance.
the Highlands and Islands of this period, as well as the military background that precipitates Macphee's crisis. The material on the wider "outsider art" question could perhaps have been expanded. Macphee was not a unique phenomemon, and although Hutchinson mentions artists like Adam Christie, it would have been enlightening to extend the discussion into artists like Scotti Wilson, and even lesser known figures, such as James Beveridge, who made the bizarre "Concrete Menagerie" near Flodden. Hutchinson does make a compelling claim that Macphee's work is comparable to the decorative fantasias created by Flora Johnstone, merging the island's new industrial ruins with traditional crafts.
Indeed, it seems very close to works such as the Owl Hous.
he applied it to the work of individuals with no formal art training who had an almost pathological need to create. It was a natural development from the "anti art" theories such as Futurism, Surrealism and Dadaism propounded by Marinetti, Andre Breton and Tristan Tzara. Dubuffet looked at work from primitive cultures and by children, but found the most exceptional works in the paintings and sculptures created by patients confined in asylums. Macphee's sculptures lack the manic energy and disturbing imagery of the work by Adolf Wolfli and Aloise Corbaz, collected by Dubuffet, or visionaries like Henry Darger or William Kurelek, but are clearly parallel.
