Robert Innes is a plein-air landscape painter, born in Kirkcaldy, and trained at Leith School of Art with Mark and Lottie Cheverton and The Glasgow School of Art with James Robertson. He has been a full-time painter since his sell-out degree show in 1994. Exhibitions followed including in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Lyon, Aix-en-Provence and London. His works are represented in private and public collections locally and around the world, notably Kirkcaldy Art Gallery and Stirling University. This is Robert's first Edinburgh exhibition for 8 years and is made up of new landscape paintings from Argyll, Fife and Devon with still-lives painted during lockdown.
This extract from a review in France succinctly sums up his work (Le Progres) "This love of nature, it is also the love of life, its perpetual movement, and it is this which springs out of all his paintings."
Robert will be the subject of a solo exhibition in October 2021
