WELCOME TO MY ART SPACE......
This online Gallery showcases my exhibition at the PITTENWEEM ARTS FESTIVAL from August 3rd - 11th 2019. (Preview Night is Friday 2nd August from 6.30 - 9.00pm). Enjoy it, send me your thoughts and ideas, visit the exhibition.
My exhibition is in Venue 59, at 2 West Shore, Pittenweem.
The East Neuk of Fife is a great place to paint. The light and the clear air chase away those grey tones which sometimes hover over Scotland. It’s ideal for the many artists, who live and work there, giving a sense of community and lots of ideas. There’s time to stop, to watch, to listen. Daily life, and the changes which the modern world imposes on the landscape are fascinating and I try to capture the moments. I hear the stories of people and places.
My paintings are about the people and places. Beyond Fife, around Scotland, to Orkney, to Ireland and to the Canadian Rockies - travels are a source of ideas. What happens in these remote landscapes, what man does to alter them is a constant theme.
I want every painting to tell some kind of story, about the past, the present or even the future. Some are based on tales told to me, or songs which have captured the spirit of the landscape, in some I hope the people tell their own tales.
Many of the stories are included on the website...
The website - like art - is a work in progress. Come back again!
Enjoy your visit.
