Adrian Wiszniewski Adrian Wiszniewski made his name as the most versatile and distinctive of the famous New Glasgow Boys who led the revival of figurative painting in Scottish art during the 1980s. Their international standing was confirmed in 1987 with exhibitions worldwide, plus the acclaimed Edinburgh Festival exhibition, 'The Vigorous Imagination' held at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Even seen from my current New York perspective, the glory days of the New Glasgow Boys remain a highpoint. They gave contemporary Scottish art a vital injection of ambition and enterprise. Yet it would have been all too easy for a key player like Wiszniewski to sit on his laurels. Happily, almost a quarter century later, he continues to go out on a limb. Wiszniewski is celebrating with an Edinburgh Festival retrospective exhibition and auction. He has reason. His work is in 33 major museum collections, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Tate London. It's his silver wedding anniversary this year. His three children aged 16 to 23, are flourishing. He has just published his third book, 'Stone,' and one of his three plays, 'The Girl, The Boy and The Hag', appears at Pitlochry Festival Theatre. So what is a painter doing in the theatre, you ask? Wiszniewski's gift is his fearless versatility. He loves to experiment, explore, surprise. "I don't want to be locked away in the studio. I need to communicate. I love collaboration; working with people with different skills. I learn so much that way." In exercising different muscles, Wiszniewski has hopped around from his characteristic, much loved paintings to neon, tapestry, ceramics, textiles, rugs, furniture, interiors design, printmaking, ("I've always thought art should be useful,") and laterly to novels, performance pieces and plays, Yet however challenging or adventurous the medium, there is no mistaking the hand. His work remains distinctively Wiszniewski. I first met Adrian when he was still a student at Glasgow School of Art. Even then he was ready to change horses in midstream, moving from a four year architecture degree to a degree in Fine Art which he completed in 1983. Already his bold and vibrant pictures of languid young men inhabiting dreamlike Arcadian settings were impressive. For Wiszniewski's paintings combine the appealing innocence of delicate visual poetry with strong, decorative, linear draughtsmanship. Thus he hints at Britain's long tradition of romantic art while nevertheless, his work is completely

contemporary, totally of today. When I was asked to curate the groundbreaking Vigorous Imagination exhibition, Wiszniewski was among the first to be invited. The works included in this exciting exhibition sale range from a student charcoal drawing from 1982 to large scale, museum quality pictures, such as 'Crucifixion,' never shown before. Many titles reflect the Wiszniewski wit and his love of puns. One glowing neon is called, 'If in doubt use Black' while a 2 canvas diptych 'Black & Blue' tackles an act of violence where, he explains, "Colour and content come together." So what next? "I have a filmscript and a novel all ready, plus I'm hoping to collaborate on a ballet. As the studio is bare, I can also get back to my painting. But now I'm off to play five a side football." At 52, one can but admire Wiszniewski's undiminished determination to do it all! Clare Henry July 2010, New York

Note: Wiszniewski started using neon in 1989 as an antidote to his heavily worked canvases and as a very direct means of communicating to a new audience. Duncan Miller comments in his introduction to William Hardie’s 1994 exhibition :’Neon signs are composed of colour and line, the two most basic elements of the language of western painting. In Wiszniewski’s neon works colour and line are as completely alive as in any painting, yet they are freed from the burden of artistic ‘self-expression’ by the way they are reduced to mechanical form. Works like these are a new, technological version of that idealism which links Matisse’s paper cut-outs to the neo-classical tradition.

combines complexity with accessibility and forms that provide function with an outrageous sense of decoration ... the distinction between art produced within the context of a gallery space and that which exists in the public domain is increasingly less clear, not only can the visual arts assist aesthetically with urban design but the built environment can provide an inspiration and audience unavailable within the confines of a gallery space'

Value Added Tax on the hammer price is imposed by law on all items affixed with an asterisk or double asterisk. Value Added Tax is charged at the appropriate rate prevailing by law at the date of sale and is payable by buyers of relevant lots.

All members of the public on our premises are there at their own risk and must note the lay-out of the accommodation and security arrangements. Accordingly neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall incur liability for death or personal injury (except as required by law by reason of our negligence) or similarly for the safety of the property of persons visiting prior to or at a sale.

(a) "Auctioneer" means the firm of Lyon & Turnbull or its authorised auctioneer, as appropriate; (b) "deliberate forgery” means an imitation made with the intention of deceiving as to authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source but which is unequivocally described in the catalogue as being the work of a particular creator and which, at the date of the sale, had a value materially less than it would have had if it had been in accordance with the description; (c) "hammer price" means the level of bidding reached (at or above any reserve) when the auctioneer brings down the hammer; (d) "terms of consignment" means the stipulated terms and rates of commission on which Lyon & Turnbull accepts instructions from sellers or their agents; (e) "total amount due" means the hammer price in respect of the lot sold together with any premium, Value Added Tax chargeable and any additional charges payable by a defaulting buyer under these Conditions; (f) "sale proceeds" means the net amount due to the seller, being the hammer price of the lot sold less commission at the stated rate, Value Added Tax chargeable and any other amounts due to us by the seller in whatever capacity and however arising; (g) "You", "Your", etc. refer to the buyer as identified in Condition 2. (h) The singular includes the plural and vice versa as appropriate. 2. BIDDING PROCEDURES AND THE BUYER (a) Bidders are required to register their particulars before bidding and to satisfy any security arrangements before entering the auction room to view or bid; (b) the maker of the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer conducting the sale shall be the buyer at the hammer price and any dispute about a bid shall be settled at the auctioneer's absolute discretion. (c) Bidders shall be deemed to act as principals. (d) Once made, no bid may be withdrawn. (e) Our right to bid on behalf of the seller is expressly reserved up to the amount of any reserve and the right to refuse any bid is also reserved. 3. INCREMENTS Bidding increments shall be at the auctioneer’s sole discretion. 4. THE PURCHASE PRICE The buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon. Antiques, Jewellery & Silver and Pictures (Not Fine Sales) 17.5%. All other sales (Fine/Special/Collections) 25% up to £25,000 / 20% thereafter.

56

(2) We shall, as agent for the seller and on their behalf pursue these rights and remedies only as far as is reasonable to make appropriate recovery in respect of breach of these Conditions

6. PAYMENT

(2) Any payments by you to us may be applied by us towards any sums owing from you to us on any account whatever without regard to any directions of you or your agent, whether express or implied.

10. COMMISSION BIDS

(2) You shall at your own risk and expense take away any lots that you have purchased and paid for not later than 3 working days following the day of the auction or upon the clearance of any cheque used for payment after which you shall be responsible for any removal, storage and other associated charges.

While prospective buyers are strongly advised to attend the auction and are always responsible for any decision to bid for a particular lot and shall be assumed to have carefully inspected and satisfied themselves as to its condition we shall if so instructed clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf. Neither the auctioneer or our employees or agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so save where such failure is unreasonable. Where two or more commission bids at the same level are recorded we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to prefer the first bid so made.

(3) No purchase can be claimed or removed until it has been paid for.

11. WARRANTY OF TITLE AND AVAILABILITY

(4) It is the buyer’s responsibility to ascertain collection procedures, particularly if the sale is not being held at our main saleroom.

The seller warrants to the auctioneer and to you that the seller is the true owner of the property consigned or is properly authorised by the true owner to consign it for sale and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims.

7. TITLE AND COLLECTION OF PURCHASES (1) The ownership of any lots purchased shall not pass to you until you have made payment in full to us of the total amount due.

8. REMEDIES FOR NON-PAYMENT OR FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES (1) If any lot is not paid for in full and taken away in accordance with these Conditions or if there is any other breach of these Conditions, we, as agent for the seller and on their behalf, shall at our absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights we may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights and remedies: (a) to proceed against you for damages for breach of contract; (b) to rescind the sale of that lot and/or any other lots sold by us to you; (c) to resell the lot (by auction or private treaty) in which case you shall be responsible for any resulting deficiency in the total amount due (after crediting any part payment and adding any resale costs). Any surplus so arising shall belong to the seller; (d) to remove, store and insure the lot at your expense and, in the case of storage, either at our premises or elsewhere; (e) to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 1.5% per month on the total amount due to the extent it remains unpaid for more than 3 working days after the sale; (f) to retain that or any other lot sold to you until you pay the total amount due; (g) to reject or ignore bids from you or your agent at future auctions or to impose conditions before any such bids shall be accepted; (h) to apply any proceeds of sale of other lots due or in future becoming due to you towards the settlement of the total amount due and to exercise a lien (that is a right to

12. AGENCY The auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by sellers or buyers. 13. TERMS OF SALE The seller acknowledges that lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the lot. 14. STANDARD VENDOR FEES AND CHARGES (Subject to VAT) (1) Commission: 15% of the first £3000 and 10% thereafter is charged on the selling price of each lot (subject to a minimum charge of £30). Loss and damage warranty: 1.5% on value of lots sold. Photography: max £40 mono per lot, max £250 colour. Internet Service: £10 per lot. (2) If a vendor wishes to withdraw a catalogued lot, a withdrawal fee will apply at the auctioneer’s discretion; this will be charged at 10% mid estimate. 15. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (1) While we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements

by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer or our employees or agents or the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 “information to buyers”. (2) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 16. FORGERIES Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any Lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer's premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale. GENERAL 17. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 18 (1) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (2). Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves enforce them. 19. Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 20. Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary appearing at the commencement of the catalogue. 21. Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect. 22. Scottish law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions.
