Donald Macdonald

Donald was born on the Isle of Lewis in 1976 and after a short time in the Scottish Infantry he moved to Aberdeen and gained a degree in Fine Art. After living and painting in Denmark and Glasgow for several years, he now lives and works in Elgin, Moray. "I have a very keen interest in the contrasts between the deliberate nature of photorealism and the more accidental side of expressionism and how the two can work together on the same canvas. For example, how runs of paint can transform a technically photorealistic object. It fascinates me how these opposites can create something 'else', something new. I think it is very important for my work to elicit emotion and 'feeling' for the viewer, to be able to work on different levels and not just the visual.”

Calum Stevenson

Calum Stevenson is a Scottish painter attending Glasgow School of Art studying for a Masters Degree in Painting. Calum graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2019. His work is primarily inspired by his surroundings and experiences growing up in and around the area of Cumbernauld. Artist’s statement “Being in Cumbernauld throughout my life I have admired the grim beauty of brutalist architecture. When I was a child, I became unwell on a family holiday that left me hooked up to an IV line in a foreign hospital. It is since that experience that I have been fascinated by my fear of medical practice that has become more of a phobic obsession. I combine my medical memories with childhood surroundings as I look back on the place that I have a strong yet unappreciated connection with. My works often result in an almost dream-like environment that plays on Cumbernauld’s original aim to be the city of the future.”
