Alastair is a painter in thickly-applied oils. He approaches the canvas with few preconceived notions of what he might want to paint: a piece might begin by following the lines left from a thin burnt umber ground or with a few random gestures in black. In so doing, he hopes to remove the obstacle of deliberate self-expression and clear the way for something authentic and alive to emerge.
Alastair will be exhibiting at The Dochas Centre in Lochgilphead throughout August 2023.
