The Diary Series27 Feb 2019 - 30 Mar 2019
We are delighted to present Christine McArthur’s first solo exhibition with The Scottish Gallery The Diary Series. She is an artist we have admired for many years, an artist who has strong characteristics of Modern British painting whilst remaining firmly rooted in the Glasgow School of belle peinture. Christine McArthur trained at Glasgow School of Art from 1971–76 and taught at both Glasgow University and Glasgow School of Art up until 1980, when she began painting full time. She has exhibited in Scotland, London and internationally.
McArthur inhabits an immersive, creative world. The Diary Series was conceived over two years ago, created in sketchbooks and diaries in response to The Gallery’s invitation, as a way to develop ideas and imagery from which finished works would emerge. These diaries capture moments from places she has visited, or a response to a poem. The passing seasons are observed and her domestic surroundings and familiar objects emerge in her imagery. She works in oil, oil pastel, acrylic, watercolour, pen and ink and collage so that layers of colour and texture are built up to create her artwork.
