New paintings by the esteemed painter Sandy Murphy RGI PAI
Previews Sunday 1 September, 2-5pm
Sandy Murphy was born in Ayrshire in 1956 and studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1976 until 1980. From his home and studio in West Kilbride, he pursues an intensely single-minded passion for paint and its involvement in his visual response to his native Ayrshire landscape.
A pupil of James Robertson and Duncan Shanks at Glasgow, Sandy’s richly textured oils have clear antecedents in Ghillies and Eardley. His intimate, carefully considered works stand comparison with the best works of both these masters of Scottish painting.
He was elected to the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts (RGI) in 2000 and the Paisley Art Institute (PAI) in 2010.
