Euan McGregor’s highly stylised landscapes with a graphic and modernist feel combine with Steven Lindsay’s bold, dramatic and dynamic portraiture. Both artists are on an upward trajectory in the art world and in the public eye throughout the UK and beyond – and this is a rare opportunity to see their work in Edinburgh, in a gallery which showcases their unique style, painterly quality and impact to the full. Euan and Steven are both graduates of Glasgow School of Art and we think that they make perfect partners in this exhibition. Euan’s work for this show is predominantly focused on Scotland’s east coast, while one can imagine Steven’s subjects inhabiting these places; on holiday, living, working, lost, or wistfully looking out to sea.

Steven Lindsay studied painting at Glasgow School of Art in the 80s. On leaving, he embarked on a successful career as a recording artist in the music industry, returning to his first love painting in 2011. He is very much an artist in ascendance, who although obviously from the European figurative tradition, brings an exciting take on that genre. The drawing and brushwork is classical yet used in an utterly modern context, sometimes demanding, sometimes humorous and always thought provoking.

Estelle Lovatt, the art critic featured on the new BBC Radio 2 Arts Show, described his work as:

“…like revisiting Vermeer in the Dutch Golden Age of painterly skill against the Colour Field of Rothko, all intertwined with an aesthetic twist of con ... Read More

Euan McGregor PAI

An award winning artist, Euan McGregor lives and works in West Kilbride on the north Ayrshire coast.

Euan’s roots are in printmaking, giving his work an emphasis on mark-making and shape. He has an interest in all things Modernist and in particular, mid 20th century British landscape painting. His influences include Hockney, Piper and the St Ives school in Cornwall.

His recent work has been inspired by some of our iconic malt whisky distilleries. Frequently drawn to marginal and fringe spaces in his work, he says “I love the fact that these structures often inhabit the wildest of places, so there’s a contradiction of sorts but they work well together, especially as the product is so synonymous with its geography. The buildings themselves are industrial cathedrals with specific shapes integral to the whisky-making process.”

Euan’s work has a strong sen ... Read More
