1922 - 1998

Unusually for a painter in the pure abstract style, Tom Hutcheson proved to be one of our most successful artists. His solid abstract constructions are almost sculptural in their depth, with each one being built up layer by layer, resulting in a uniquely distinctive high relief style of painting.

Tom's study at Glasgow School of Art in the 1940's was interrupted by a wartime career as a RAF pilot. On his return to the art world he was appointed Head of the Art Department at Jordanhill School of Art, where he remained for thirteen years before retiring to become a full-time painter. In 1989, he was elected a Member of Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Art.

Tom Hutcheson exhibited widely throughout the UK and in New York, Tokyo, Sydney and Germany.
