Ryan Mutter

Born in 1978, Ryan studied at Glasgow School of Art, where he graduated in 2001. Like many artists he began his professional career teaching, but as demand for his work steadily grew he made the decision to paint full time in 2005. He has won several awards, including three consecutive years at the Royal Glasgow Institute, and his work can be found in collections around the world, including Geneva, Zurich, Vancouver, Belgium, Tasmania, Boston, and Utrecht. His inspiration comes from Britain’s industrial heritage, and Glasgow’s historical role as the ship building capital of the world. Through his work Ryan seeks to capture and remind people of how important Glasgow’s huge work force was in the development of the modern world.

David Smith

Born in 1957, David Smith is a Scottish contemporary landscape artist. The palette and inspiration for his work is taken from the seaboard and landscape of Scotland.

A past member and president of the Glasgow Group of Artists, he was elected member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) in 2011. He was elected member of RSW council in 2013. Smith has shown at the Royal Glasgow Institute (RGI), Royal Scottish Academy (RSA), Paisley Art Institute (PAI) and RSW annual exhibitions and has won various prestigious awards.

Kate Steenhauer

This exhibition is possible thanks to the support of CHC Helicopters Aberdeen. CHC provided the artist with unprecedented access to its operations and sponsored Kate's framing costs. Originally from the Netherlands, Kate's diverse career path has taken her from tennis, to engineering, including a PhD in Coastal Engineering from the University of Aberdeen, to art. She draws from direct observation and then uses oil paint and intaglio printmaking techniques to create artworks all with emphasis on line, texture and scale. Her latest work reflects the industrial life in the shipyards and heliport of Aberdeen. The artist's unique perspective attempts to humanise Scottish industry animating stories of a skilled labour force, absorbed in their work and at one with their environment. The artist has won several awards including a Royal Scottish Academy Award, and has been exhibited regularly at the RSA, the Mall Galleries, London, Visual Arts Scotland Annual Exhibition and Peacock Visual Arts amongst others.
