ARTISTS TO WATCH OUT FOR IN EDINBURGH
Alan’s exciting painterly approach to painting the body sets him apart. His Facebook is really worth checking out and he runs regular anatomy classes that I would highly recommend to any artist interested in the body as a subject.
An artist who came out of Leith School of Art, Audrey’s paint surfaces and lonely figures are firmly planted in the tradition of Scottish painting whilst embracing more abstract qualities.
Jill paints the city and buildings. This is in itself unusual, but she marries interesting surfaces with an archaeological approach to her subject-matter that brings together the layers of meaning in the city, its history and underlying archaeology.
Matt Storstein paints still lives ostensibly. But his treatment of what amounts to fairly humble subject matter turns them into icons, pointers and symbols. The Leith interest in surface marks his paintings out as meditative as well as representative objects. They’re magic!
