Philip BrahamBorn: 1959
Place of Birth: Glasgow
A graduate from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Philip Braham first came to prominence in the 1980s with the rise of figurative painting in Scotland, which culminated in The Vigorous Imagination, an exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in 1987. His career includes 22 solo exhibitions to date; in addition to numerous group shows both nationally and internationally. Among the awards received are the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy Guthrie Award for painting and the Royal Scottish Academy Morton Award for lens-based work. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Raab Gallery Berlin, The Scottish Gallery and at the Royal Scottish Academy for the Edinburgh International Festival contribution in 2010. A longstanding interest in continental aesthetics informs his pedagogical role as Course Director for Art, Philosophy and Contemporary Practices at the University of Dundee.
Braham works in both painting and photography, which are informed by the Northern European engagement with landscape as a metaphor for the human condition. Recent projects reflect on the temporal nature of our existence through personal recollection and collective history, set within the slowly evolving landscape that bears us forward. Fidelity to experience is fundamental to his practice, and this brings a poetic grace to his technical mastery of oil painting and silver-based photography.
