Inspired by his meanderings in Scottish landscapes (the exhibition title, Stravaigin‘ is borrowed from an old Scots word for rambling), Nichol Wheatley’s latest paintings capture scenes focusing on his ongoing fascination with light, specifically during the period from dusk into early night. Stravaigin’ is his first solo exhibition at The Glasgow Gallery since joining the roster earlier this year. 

Best known for his large cycle of murals of the Tam o’Shanter story hanging in Glasgow’s Oran Mor, and his work with his artistic hero, the late Alasdair Gray, Wheatley has also acted as arts consultant for infrastructure projects and worked for Oscar-winning film designers. His next project will be a 120 metre-long sculpture made of concrete and mosaics at Stockingfield Bridge in northwest Glasgow.
