Robert Macmillan | Lost in Wonder
A catalogue to accompany Robert Macmillan's exhibition Lost in Wonder.
This is the second exhibition of Robert Macmillan The Scottish Gallery has hosted since his first in 2012 and it is long overdue. Macmillan has been working continuously since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee in 1997 and has quietly emerged as a significant contributor to Scottish landscape painting. The artist lists the Tonalists as well as Turner as major influences on his work, but his paintings too can be read in the context of a north-east tradition in Scottish painting which includes Sylvia Wishart, Joan Eardley, Frances Walker, James Howie, James Morrison and Philip Braham, all of whom have strived to capture poetic truth in the landscape.
