Images of the new paintings go live on the website Saturday 15th October
The contemporary Scottish artist is returning to Modern Artists Gallery, Berkshire with a new collection of paintings this October. Following the success of previous shows at the gallery, the artist has firmly established himself as a major force within the Contemporary Scottish field and the new work bears testament to his growing importance.
Buchanan's work is immediately identifiable and many of his popular themes are re-visited.The title of the show 'Works on Water' sets the tone of the show with a selection of the artist's characters mesmerised by their watery surroundings. The paintings share the common theme of solitude. It is not a lonely or forlorn solitude but rather a celebration ofpeace and serenity. In a world filled with tumultuous noise, mayhem and disorder, Stuart Buchanan has found a very comfortable refuge where the viewercan ignore the havoc of the outside world. The paintings depict mostly single figures,and sometimes pairs and all share an enviable meditative state.
