BP Portrait Award Finalist Ewan McClure will return to The Scottish Gallery this May with a new series of rich oil paintings.
Since 2018, Ewan McClure has been working as artist in residence at E. A. Hornel’s studio in Kirkcudbright. During this residency his work in the studio has informed his still lifes and informal arrangements. He has concentrated on the effect of light and shadow, and complex compositions viewed through angled mirrors, playing with ideas of depth and illusion. The surrounding townscape and countryside of Kirkcudbright have also been explored. Inside and Out reveals a new chapter in the artistic history of Kirkcudbright with this beguiling and original body of new work.
It is only recently that McClure has turned his artistic attention towards his surroundings. His viewpoint is often unconventional, with paintings highlighting the industrial nature of the working harbour or drone’s eye views from the town’s famous Tolbooth.
His skill as a draughtsman, honed over many years, and his love and knowledge of the medium means the response to his subject is intuitive, applying the paint alla prima, the brushwork sweeping, luscious and confident.
