12th March – 4th April

Glasgow’s longest-established contemporary art gallery, Compass Gallery exhibits newly-emerging and established Scottish contemporaries, and in this exhibition of new paintings and works on paper, Adrian Wiszniewski returns to the home of his debut exhibition.

Among the highlights are a suite of charming fine and linear figurative drawings – paired-down and focusing on the characters and their stories – and in a change from his more vivid colours, rendered in delicate softer shades. In contrast, there are several new works in black and white showing a delicate lacework-like line, and some calligraphy. His fertile imagination and superb illustrative draughtsmanship are always very much evident.

Wiszniewski rose to prominence in 1984, after graduating from Glasgow School of Art, and became a leading figure in a revival of figurative painting in Scottish Art as part of a group known as the New Glasgow Boys, and has since enjoyed enormous success as a Scottish artist on the international stage.
