Shetland and the north of Scotland is where Malcolmson finds a lot of his subject matter and inspiration. Most of the work made over the past decade has been in the form of box constructions made mainly from wood; carved and painted, sometimes using found materials. Folk, naïve and primitive art are the kind of objects made for use and ornament, often by unnamed makers, is predominantly the main source of ideas for his work.
