Euan McGregor

Created 10 Aug, 2011   - 0 Comments  


Euan McGregor graduated from the Glasgow school of art in 1998 and has since exhibited in Scotland, London and Barcelona.

He was the recipient of three awards from the Royal Glasgow Institute over consecutive years and continues to exhibit his own work as well as teaching art and design in secondary school. His influences include the St Ives School in Cornwall and Ivon Hitchens.

This exhibition reflects Euan’s love of landscape, West Kilbride and its surrounding area. The village ramps up above the shore in these paintings with a sense of depth and height. Whether layering up of washes amidst strong geometric shape or scraping back of colour to reveal layers underneath, Euan hopes to capture the extraordinary light and variety in the North Ayrshire landscape. Wide-open seascapes and windswept trees are juxtaposed with a diversity of close packed buildings.

Euan, his wife Emily and three children have lived in West Kilbride for 6 years. Euan continually finds new and varied inspiration for his paintings within the area where his family are very settled.
