Ernesto Floriano Vaz
“The themes and preoccupations of my recent paintings have been an exploration of the idea of the colour field, realised in a variety of painting media.

My current fascination is with the immediacy versus the subtlety of colour and its ability to express emotion and provoke response. A concept of healing with colour to promote balance, health and happiness underpins my process.”

Group and solo exhibitions include: Compass Gallery, Gallowgate Artists Studios, ScotlandArt Gallery, Glasgow School of Art

Ian Macpherson
“My current creative activity may be described as a visual manifestation and distillation of intellectual and intuitive thought, finding physical form and movement on the flat surface.

A reaching for and expression of the largely verbally inexpressible, full of concurrences and contradictions, occupying a field where potentially anything can happen, where intellect and instinct are immersed in the existential flux of becoming, disintegrating, changing.”

Group and solo exhibitions include: Fruitmarket Gallery, Talbot Rice Gallery, Glasgow Print Studio, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow School of Art
