All works shown above by Stuart Buchanan are available to view in the Modern Artists Gallery
'Stuart Buchanan has firmly established himself as a major force within the Contemporary Scottish field, and his recent collection bears testament to the growing interest in his work.'
Buchanan's work is immediately identifiable and many of his popular themes are re-visited. . His paintings share the common theme of solitude. It is not a lonely or forlorn solitude but rather a celebration of peace and serenity. In a world filled with tumultuous noise, mayhem and disorder, Stuart Buchanan has found a very comfortable refuge where the viewer can ignore the havoc of the outside world. The paintings depict mostly single figures,and sometimes pairs and all share an enviable meditative state.
