A Breath of Fresh Air

30 September 2021 - 23 October 2021

For his first solo show with The Scottish Gallery, A Breath of Fresh Air, Robert Innes has synthesized his learning and experience at The Glasgow School of Art with time spent working in the Highlands of Scotland and the South of France, to prove himself to be the genuine article: a plein air painter with something to say about the world around him.

This group of work focuses on simple still lifes; the harbour towns of the East Neuk and particularly the West Coast of Scotland, its sparkling beaches and hazy vistas.
