Steven Lindsay studied painting at Glasgow School of Art in the 1980’s, and after a career as a recording artist, returned to painting nine years ago, bringing his own take on the European figurative tradition, with classical drawing and brushwork in a modern context and employing a dramatic Vermeer-like chiaroscuro. His work is widely-collected and this is a chance to see his work gathered together in a cohesive setting. He says ‘The similarities I found between music and painting are striking, in the composition, subject matter, relative values, rhythm, harmony and even choosing a title for a particular piece. I believe my life’s journey is represented in my work. I became a full time painter in 2011 after being shortlisted for Scotland’s Aspect Art prize.’
