Inspiring Scotland -- Scottish Seascape and Landscape Oil Paintings by Colin Carruthers

Displaying at Artery Gallery Canvas Paintings in Saint Andrews and Crieff with his new work is internationally selling artist Colin Carruthers. His seascapes and areas have been shown through Artery Gallery since the gallery opened in Saint Andrews two and a half years ago, and Colin has a great track record of selling out each of his works on every occasion.

Originally from Upper Ireland in europe and now living and working in the Western side Midlands, Colin makes regular trips up to Scotland to capture its scenery and dramatise the uneven poems of the landscape in his art.

Colin says, regularly am Scotland, where I find the high drama of the Scottish Shoreline, a constant source of influence for my paintings. There's a challenge involved in my work. With every canvas I attempt, I am searching for something. Beyond simply looking inside my paintings and gaining an aesthetic pleasure, I really do think it's important that they offer up space for thought"

The strengths of his canvases palette knife oil painting lie in their versatile respond to nature as he grapples with the relationship between memory, place and feeling. His work challenges our assumptions of the landscape and returns us to a new sense of engagement, both spiritual and practical, with your surroundings. His triptychs in particular, add that extra wide ranging dimension to the image.

Colin explains, eople often value paintings of a place they have visited because they need to feel a connection with it and what to be reminded of where they've been. Lots of people have a yearning to be by the sea, experiencing and enjoying the freedom of being by the shoreline, the sounds, the smells, the impression of being healthy and alive. I need my areas to share with you in that sensation?
