Scottish Art – featured artist Archie Dunbar McIntosh

'Pier Number 4' by Archie Dunbar McIntosh

'Pier Number 4' by Archie Dunbar McIntosh

Continuing with the theme of our current Scottish art show, today we are highlighting the work of Archie Dunbar McIntosh

Archie Dunbar McIntosh was born in Glasgow in 1936. His Father generated Archie’s interest in art through visits to the Kelvingrove art gallery, whilst family holidays on paddlesteamers “doon the watter” gave McIntosh his life-long passion for the waters, banks and ‘flyers’ of the Clyde. He studied at the Glasgow School of Art from 1953 to 1957.

McIntosh’s paintings reflect his enduring love of the Scottish Isles. Archie says: “Since childhood, I have lived in close proximity to sea, loch, river and mountain. As a painter I have the desire to investigate the form, colour, texture and mood of each, and respond through drawing and painting. I feel it is part of my cultural heritage to interpret and translate the many influences in my life and soul. Within the ‘larger vision’ there exists many smaller component parts, which can combine to wear the whole. For example, a small harbour can present graphic images of fishermen ropes, reels, boxes, boats, birds – each with the potential for interpretation changing light, changing mood, changing seasons, changing vision.”

Scottish Contemporary Art: Artist – Louis McNally

Scottish Art: Louis McNally 'Stornaway Harbour'

Scottish Art: Louis McNally 'Stornaway Harbour'

Sold this morning – painting by Scottish Contemporary Artist Louis McNally

The title of the painting is ‘Harbour Scene, Stornaway’

’Harbour Scene, Stornaway’ shows a small Scottish fishing village on what is probably Sunday, the day of rest. All the fishing boats are moored and everything at ground level appears still and quiet. The movement and light and shade come from Louis McNally’s depiction of the sky. A tall church spire draws our gaze upwards to the turmoil of clouds above, casting their shadows down on the multi-coloured houses and fishing boats.

David Schofield was born in Scotland in 1972. He studied contemporary art at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. He is a surrealist artist who produces paintings which are invariably thought provoking with striking and enduring images. His current fascination is with the circus.
