Our goal for the Scottish Exhibition in September was to host the most exciting contemporary Scottish artists. With this in the mind, we will be exhibiting for the first time, work by Gerard M Burns.
We were so attracted to his paintings that we couldnt resist sharing this with you now and getting a work on the wall!
Gerard Burns | Feel the Fear | Oil on canvas | 47 x 57 inches £12,500
Gerard M. Burns was born in Glasgow in 1961,graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1983. Principal of Art at St Aloysius' College in glasgow, he left teaching in 1999 to concentrate full time on painting. This commitment has resulted in his current standing as one of Scotland's most respected artists with a client base ranging from A-list celebrities to prominent members of business communities in the UK, Australia, Europe and the USA.
''For those coming to Gerard's work for the first time it is worth noting that although we are presented with an image which could be described at fist glance as 'representational', even 'photographic', each of the various pictorial elements also contains a deeper symbolic meaning. Whether it is wolves prowling around the legs of a small girl, a pinstriped figure on a high wire suspended above the city, a young woman standing at a water's edge, or a child leading a black horse through a winter wilderness, each combination is intended to provoke in us an emotional response, a sense of place, a feeling almost that we "have been here before" in essence that the whole becomes far greater than the sum of its parts.''
