We are delighted to have our first solo show with this much loved and collected artist. With thirty seven paintings, this is an exhibition that spans all of Gordon’s iconic subject matter – birds, boats and biddies, wee lums and poppy fields, Ailsa Craig, the Bass Rock and jaunty still life.Gordon studied at Glasgow School of Art and began his working life as a designer and picture framer. Over time demand for his paintings grew and Gordon is now a full time professional artist, and the only framing he does is his own – with his signature creativity and flair. An exciting and intriguing artist, Gordon has built up a strong, loyal following of both private and corporate clients around the world. He is represented by a select number of prestigious galleries throughout Great Britain as well as taking part in exhibitions in London, New York, Hong Kong and Stockholm.
Gordon Wilson does things his own way and his approach to painting is no different. Treating his job as an artist like any other, he is in his studio by 7.30 every morning, six days a week. Tea is brewed, and the music is switched on. This is perhaps where the routine and regimen ends. Although he might have had ideas on his walk to the studio he begins his work for the day in quite an impulsive manner, embarking upon a journey without really knowing where it will end. He finds this impulsiveness and sense of the unknown stimulating creatively – he might send off his ‘grandmother’ on a stumpy little puffer boat, or get lost in a field of poppies, or exorcise a Glen Garry character dreamt up in the night! Every day is different.
A film will accompany the exhibition, providing an insight into the man behind the paintings, and Gordon will be in attendance to meet guests at the private view.
2nd to 17th of April
Private View : Friday 1st April 6-8.30pm
