Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Ian McWhinnie

Studied at Glasgow School of Art

McWhinnie’s paints in a personal and recognisable style depicting a variety of subjects including the circus, dancers and musicians. He often employs a set of recurring images such as vases of tulips or the pattern on the fabric of a dress. In many of the paintings the action is occurring outside of the tightly cropped frame and we are given clues as to what event the inscrutable spectators are watching.

Beyond the characters in the foreground we are offered a window onto scenes of architecture and landscapes as dusk falls over the provincial towns of McWhinnie’s travels through Italy and France.
