James Greer

James Greer was born in Glasgow’s Townhead in 1934, a mere stones-throw from Glasgow School of Art which he attended from 1954-58. It was here, under the tutelage of Philip Reeves and Lenox Pattison that he first developed his lifelong love of printmaking in particular the exacting discipline of wood engraving.  His wood engravings document the changes to his home city of Glasgow – lone tenements stand like sentinels, old, disused railway carriages no more than scrap metal. 

He has also worked with enamel as a medium – applying glass to copper and firing it – the resulting landscapes subtle and diffused are beautiful objects with a wonderful clarity of colour.
