THESCOT TISHGALLERY CONTEMPORARY ART SINCE 1842


Calum McClure

New Paintings & Drawings 7 September - 1 October 2011 The Scottish Gallery is delighted to host Calum McClure’s first solo exhibition since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2010. The recent winner of the Jolomo Bank of Scotland Award for Scottish Landscape painting, McClure is one of the most interesting and skilful talents to emerge in recent years. His remarkable paintings and drawings which focus on the dilapidating country house and grounds at Cammo Estate are atmospheric and detailed; created from direct observation, but also memory. They explore the way nature is gradually reclaiming the land at the once illustrious estate, once a place famed for its gentile design and exotic flora.

"In my work I am concerned mainly with atmospherics and memory. Sources include formal and botanical gardens, cemeteries and country estates. These hold both personal memories from my childhood as well as those pertaining to their own history. I hope to capture these places at quiet moments when nothing specific is happening, so it is the place alone that holds the viewers attention."
