31/07/2021

Jock McFadyen's superb handling of the oil medium, working all prima from tiny to monumental scale, is never put to serve belle peinture. Rather it points to the beauty lying undiscovered in the backwaters of urban exploration or the country road unadorned by the promise of an unparalleled view at the terminus. A Royal Academician with an East End Studio, McFadyen has never turned his back on Scotland and applies the same unsentimental, discursive eye to Edinburgh as to Brick Lane.

Galleries: Joan Eardley is being celebrated in a strikingly new way

"The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh, who represented Eardley in her lifetime and beyond, open their major exhibition as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival, and amongst the early evocative sketches and paintings, the iconic landscapes and startling portraits, some never previously exhibited, is something a little different - a tapestry interpretation of one of Eardley's much-loved Catterline landscapes."

An interview with cityscape painter Jock McFadyen | Art UK

"There are compelling locations that are unwilling to be painted in a way that makes the paint work and then the picture doesn't succeed. Some would say that a better painter would paint the location anyway and to hell with the result, but both parties have to yield, the painter and the painted. That's why painters move trees and buildings around and tell topographical lies."

If you like art and Scottish Art in particular, just spend 10 minutes zooming into the Scottish Gallery. I find the Angie Lewin's flower sketches particularly delightful
Has the Kirsten Coelho exhibition finished? Love to know.
