Behind The Scenes At The Museum

Behind The Scenes At The Museum

In these paintings Jane Gardiner’s fascination with mark-making and respect for the medium expresses itself as a pleasure in the tactility and colour of oil paint. These small works are generally executed in one go, on pre-prepared panels and are snapshots of objects and artworks which have caught the eye of the artist on visits to museums. They are vignettes of hidden corners, half glimpsed, a clash of colours or textures which taken out of context become small abstracts to delight the viewer.   ‘Two Heads’ Oil on Panel ‘Three Butterflies’ Oil on Panel ‘Three Admirals’ Oil on Panel ‘The Polar Bear’ Oil on Panel ‘The Baby’s Mask’ Oil on Panel ‘Teeth’ Oil on Panel ‘Single Chair Edinburgh’ Oil on Panel ‘Shadow Dancers’ Oil on Panel ‘Moulded’ Oil on Panel ‘Red Heads’ Oil on Panel ‘Red Chair’ Oil on Panel ‘Delicate Bones’ Oil on Panel ‘In The Navy’ Oil on Panel ‘Red and Green’ Oil on Panel ‘Pink’ Oil on Panel ‘In The Bird House’ Oil on Panel ‘People’s Journal’ Oil on Panel ‘Green Paneling’ Oil on Panel ‘Green Room’ Oil on Panel ‘Fresh Air’ Oil on Panel ‘Edinburgh Blue’ Oil on Panel ‘Cambridge Red’ Oil on Panel Ladderback’ Oil on Panel ‘Classic’ Oil on Panel ‘Greek’ Oil on Panel ‘Crouching Venus’ Oil on Panel ‘The Elf’ Oil on Panel ‘Egyptian Smile’ Oil on Panel ‘The Brogues’ Oil on...

Cate Inglis & Andrew Squire

Cate Inglis & Andrew Squire

  Cate Inglis‘s work is concerned with the layers and structure of the urban landscape: the transience of the built environment in a relentless process of growth and change. She searches for overgrown, derelict subjects – places where disappearing buildings leave gap sites and wasteland. Recent work has involved exploring the edges of urban areas. Bleak, forgotten places that have fallen out of use. Structures left to decay, exposed interiors overrun by plant life, the accumulated layers of habitation, use and disuse. Working in oils on a paper collage surface, she retains a strong element of drawing in her paintings – underpinning the structures with an emphasis on draughtsmanship. The paper layers are an important element, an indication of how thin and temporary everything we build ultimately is. Andrew Squire having lived and worked in Glasgow for over 30 years has now moved to the NW highlands, and finds that he is able to see the city in a more detached way – these little paintings are a gesture of celebration of it’s visual richness and diversity, and it’s history. Most of his work at the moment is focussed on the elemental environment and atmosphere of the Highlands, but all artists channel what is important to them and the people and places of Glasgow have been very important to his creative development. In many ways socially, politically and historically the two places are inextricably linked.       ‘Advertising’ Oil on Board ‘Fragments X’ Oil on Board ‘Fragments VI’ Oil on Board ‘Fragments IX’ Oil on Board ‘Collapse’ Oil on Board ‘Warehouses II’ Oil on Board ‘Tramway Depot II’ Oil on Board ‘Torpedo Shed Doors’ Oil on Board ‘Sawdust’ Oil on Board ‘Perimeter I’ Oil on Board ‘Industry’ Oil on Board ‘Fragments V’ Oil on Board ‘Derelict’ Oil on Board ‘Concrete Cottage II’ Oil on Board ‘Boiler House’ Oil on Board ‘Ruchill Church Hall’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Queen’s Cafe’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Platform 12’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Norfolk St’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Nelson St’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Maryhill Locks’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Govanhill Picture House’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Gardner St’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Finnieston Crane’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Doocot, Firhill’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Departure Board’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Daisy St Church’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Crossmyloof Mansions, Shawlands’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Concourse’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘The Brazen Head’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Bill’s Tool Store’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Back-court, Govanhill’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Back-court, Govan’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Back-court, Crosshill’ Mixed media on gesso panel ‘Argyll St’ Mixed media on gesso...
