The Ploughman | January 2022
The Scottish Gallery welcomes back Geoff Uglow for his fourth one-person exhibition with us over the last ten years. His oil painting has the physical presence of sculpture, but his subject is often ephemeral: the movement of a wave, the bloom of the growing rose, the dusty heat of an Italian roadway. While the work will always stand for itself, his poetic commentary in this catalogue gives us a unique way into his processes: intellectual rigour and instinct; studio and exterior; influence and inspiration; scale and medium; familiarity and the urge for new.
