Charles Simpson | Scale

A catalogue to accompany Charles Simpson's exhibition Scale, February 2020

To be a Scottish landscape painter you must enjoy a challenge: the challenge of finding your subject, often hard won in all weathers; the patience to endure long hours toiling in the studio; the confidence to know that what you create is both individual and important. In this new body of work Charles Simpson has challenged himself, the results forming his third exhibition with The Scottish Gallery, Scale.

Since the mid-1970s, Charles has gravitated towards the wild stretch of coastline between Mallaig and Arisaig. This quiet and remote corner of the country provides Charles with endless subject-matter. Charles captures the landscape with the skill of a painter who is deeply familiar with place and the confidence of an artist who enjoys the process of putting brush to canvas to capture the moment.

Charles can be included in a distinguished line of artists who have responded to the ever-changing beauty of Scotland’s west coast. For our considerable benefit, the torch is safe in the hands of an artist working at the height of his powers.
