We present a new selection of works by west coast of Scotland painter Andrew Sinclair: a joint exhibition with Joyce Gunn Cairns MBE. Painting solely in oils, in the manner of ‘chiaroscuro’ style, Sinclair uses strong contrasting tones to recreate the human form. Through his work, he presents a window into real-life scenes, including intimate compositions, larger group pieces, local landscapes and still lifes. ‘Using strong lighting on the subject assists in capturing the form and creating a dynamic solid composition. Through subtle narratives within the painting, an interaction develops between the viewer and the subjects portrayed.’ Andrew’s work exudes a certain spice, most likely picked up from some far-off land; a flavour he has successfully merged with his study of Highland locals. His distinctive palette, juxtaposed with the interplay of shadow and light, conjures a unique and individual style.
