'Buchanan paintings are full of delicacy, poetry and serenity.'

 


Stuart Buchanan paintings are immediately identifiable and many of his popular themes are re-visited.

His past series set  the tone with a selection of the artist's characters mesmerised by their watery surroundings. The paintings resonate quietude yet are subtly amusing. Buchanan has found a very comfortable refuge where the viewer can ignore the havoc of the outside world.

The painting The Great Tay Whale tells the story of an unfortunate male humpback (extremely rare in British waters) He first appeared in the River Tay in 1883, and was presumably lost chasing the shoals of abundant herring.

The actual skeleton now resides in the Dundee Museum as one of the most famous attractions for over 100 years.

The importance placed on water is undoubtedly inspired by the coastal location of the artist's home and studio in the remote fishing village of Catterline on Scotland's East Coast. It is no surprise to hear that Buchanan is not the only artist to be inspired by the views from his studio TheWatchie.

This small fisherman's cottage was previously home to Joan Eardley (1921-1963) one of Scotlands most important artists. Eardley was integral in Scotland's artistic heritage and Stuart Buchanan is following in her footsteps.


Stuart has firmly established himself as a major force within the contemporary art world.
