Alan Davie: A Universal Vision
- 13 September — 31 October 2015 *on now
Alan Davie is arguably Scotland’s greatest painter. Indeed the renowned critic David Sylvester once cited Francis Bacon and Alan Davie as the two most important post-war British painters. A talented musician, poet and painter he drew his inspiration from such varied cultures as the Australian Bushman, Caribbean Indian, Ancient Egyptian, Celt and Pict. Sadly this truly unique painter passed away in April 2014 but his place in history as one of Europe’s most important and influential artists is assured.
Alan Davie: A Universal Vision is the first Scottish show of Davie’s work since his death last year. Curated by his friend James Coxson and Arts Development Officer Gillian Smith this exhibition aims to highlight and celebrate the life and work of Alan Davie and will show paintings from the 1940s to the year 2000.
