Scottish Figuration

6 - 30 August 2014
/

Overview

2014 marks the 'Year of the Homecoming' in Scotland, a year-long programme of events celebrating the country's food, drink, natural resources, ancestral heritage and culture. As the world looks to Scotland for major sporting events, including the XXth Commonwealth Games in July and the 40th Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in September, the country's commitment to art and creativity will also come under the spotlight. Scotland's public museums are showcasing major exhibitions celebrating native artists, such asGENERATION: 25 years of Contemporary Art in Scotland at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Flowers Gallery is delighted to join the celebrations with an exhibition of figurative paintings by nine prominent Scottish artists at our Cork Street space 6 - 30 August, 2014. The exhibitors include the famous 'New Glasgow Boys' Peter Howson, Ken Currie, Steven Campbell, Stephen Conroy and Adrian Wiszniewski, who all studied at Glasgow School of Art in the 1980's. The group spear-headed a revival of interest in ambitious figure painting, and their international success has contributed significantly to the cultural renaissance of Glasgow as a city in recent decades. Also featured in the exhibition is the work of John Bellany, Jock McFadyen, Eduardo Paolozzi and Alison Watt, providing viewers with a unique overview of the strong tradition of figurative work by Scottish artists. The collection will reveal interesting new parallels between a group of artists each with a unique approach to a shared subject, and a unique understanding of their shared Scottish heritage.
