The Art of John Slavin

We’re really excited about our latest exhibition which is set to open at Collingwood College, Durham University on Saturday 2nd March. The show comprises about forty paintings by the Scottish artist John Slavin depicting the French Pyrenees. The work is bold, colourful and expressive and is the fruit of several months travelling in the south of France where John produces hundreds of sketches that he subsequently transforms into rich and textured oil paintings back in his studio in Edinburgh토토사이트.

John recently had a successful solo exhibition at the Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh and a work of his was included in the Royal Scottish Academy Open Exhibition 2012-13. His work has been well received by critics, including Roger Cox writing in The Scotsman.

According to John, ‘visits to the South, namely Arles and the Pyrenees … have altered my physical perception of light. I have become familiar with a certain region of the Pyrenees Orientales and have observed miracles of light in the mountains.”

The exhibition at Durham University represents John’s first solo show outside Scotland.
