Winter Journey

Duncan Shanks

03 May 2017 - 03 Jun 2017

It is fitting that Duncan Shanks, in his eightieth year and one of Scotland’s most original and distinguished painters, should have the main gallery for our anniversary month of May. Shanks has been a consistent exhibitor with The Scottish Gallery since the seventies and his commitment to painting, the rigour of his intellect and the inexhaustible energy of his mark-making single him out. This new exhibition is thematically rich and includes self-portraiture as a poignant ingredient in a narrative of movement of time (season) and place which for the artist is a metaphor of the existential quest.
