Margaretann Bennett

Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1991, Margaretann Bennett has become one of Scotland's most exciting artists working in mixed media today. Painting across all genres, the surfaces of her canvases are rich with colour and texture, treading a fine line between abstraction and detail. This is most evident in her landscape paintings that depict Scotland as a collection of experiences and events, an evocation of lives lived and time passed, rather than a specific place.

After graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1971, he spent the last four and a half decades fine-tuning a style that is both lyrical and highly technical, contributing regularly to exhibitions at home and abroad.

Rather than attempting to realise a predetermined concept, his work follows a specific process which allows the painting to emerge through its implementation.

John Glynn

Born in Plymouth in 1964, John was interested in painting and drawing since childhood. His ambition to be an artist was thwarted by the tragic death of his father when he was thirteen. John turned down a place at Plymouth School of Art choosing instead to go out to work to contribute to the family finances. He kept painting and drawing in his spare time producing abstract and surreal work which was exhibited in the Plymouth area and with which he had some success. For some years he designed sea life artwork that was reproduced in print. This gave him the confidence (and income) to risk painting full time. He moved to Banff in Scotland in 2007 where the peace and serenity of the coastal villages inspired him to produce seemingly simple line drawings of the houses and harbours. These drawings have become his signature style and are exhibited in galleries across Scotland.

Steven Higginson

Steven was born in Dumfries, Scotland, in 1982. Growing up, Steven often sketched the iconic images from album covers and music books and these influences have stayed with him and can be seen in the use of pop photography in his contemporary still lifes. Having won various national competitions and prizes for his work, Steven followed his inevitable path in art, choosing to study at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee in part due to the art school's traditional approach to teaching painting. He was awarded The Aiden Threlfall Traveling Scholarship from the Goldsmith's Company in London in 2004, the year he graduated. He used the scholarship to spend time in Paris, Venice, Rome and Madrid studying works of the old masters, namely Velazquez, Caravaggio and Manet. This trip proved very influential as these artists' chiaroscuro style can still be seen in his work today. He has been painting full-time since 2005, and has had work accepted at the RGI and Aberdeen Artists Society annual shows.

Cate Inglis

Cate Inglis is a Scottish painter and printmaker and the 2013 winner of the RGI Armour Award for Landscape Painting of Distinction. The recipient of two awards whilst attending Glasgow School of Art, since graduating she exhibits regularly in both solo and group exhibitions. She works from her home-studio in the West End of Glasgow surrounded by post-industrial inspiration. Of her work she says "My practice is concerned with the layers and structure of the urban landscape: the transience of the built environment in a relentless process of growth and change. Anonymous yet familiar, I focus on the mundane city streets...the overlooked and unnoticed details in a patchwork of grand houses, industrial wastelands, concrete offices and glittering new flats that fill the streets of our cities. I am drawn in by the illusion of permanence that we create for ourselves and the fragile nature of the recognisable city in a time of accelerating change. The surfaces of my paintings echo the structure of these complex layers. By constructing and peeling back layers of paper, I create delicately textured surfaces on which to paint, print and draw. The paper layers act as a metaphor for how thin and temporary everything we build ultimately is."

Since then he has gained recognition for his mixed media works depicting enigmatic scenes often at the edges of human inhabitation. "Many of my paintings are full of symbols or images relating to events, thoughts, ideas from my life, but I am not going to bore the viewer with such details. The viewer will bring all of their own memories with them, and will either connect in some way with what they see or they will not. I like mystery, I do not want everything explained to me, I like to discover for myself."

Maralyn Reed-Wood

Maralyn's affair with ceramics began at school in Kirkcudbright where the Higher Art class worked with the Lochhead Pottery. She studied art in Essex making pots in a studio converted from an air-raid shelter. After becoming a teacher, Maralyn worked as an Art Therapist in an epilepsy hospital, setting up her own studio simultaneously. At a time when figures were most unacceptable in the art world, she worked against the trend. Her figures were accepted by the Triennialle de la Porcelain, Nyon, Switzerland, the 'porcelain capital' of Europe. This was followed by The International Porcelain Exhibition at the Scottish Gallery and an Arts Council Award. Illness brought her career to an abrupt halt, and she re-invented herself making small ceramic pieces which sold internationally for the next 15 years, winning awards and commendations. She has finally returned to her figurative roots, and her porcelain figures sell in galleries throughout Scotland. She has exhibited with the RSA and The RGI and has been short-listed on four occasions for figurative porcelain awards.

The inspiration for my work comes almost exclusively from the coastal and rural environment around my home town of Montrose. The paintings reflect a dual interest. On one hand they are portrayals of a very distinctive and visually rich landscape with its fishing stations, small boats, farm implements and sheds. Equally, the paintings are an exploration of colour, tone, shape and line that are brought together in a carefully balanced composition.

The unique qualities of that landscape - its remoteness, its sense of rugged endurance contrasted with the delicacy of certain shorelines, the physical isolation of the people and their homes - all create a powerful drama that draws me back again and again.”

Georgie Young

Georgie Young is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and paints mainly contemporary Scottish landscapes. Her work aims to evoke a feeling and capture a sense of place, an atmosphere or an unexpected detail rather than reproduce a direct likeness. The paintings are a product of observation, interpretation and improvisation; the original observation is processed, re-examined and the essence abstracted. Her work is an attempt to reveal the unexpected beauty of unremarked places, the interplay of light, time, weather and season on everyday landscape, and the presence and influence of the human on the physical environment.
