Philip Raskin Exhibition - Scottish Symphony Nov 2014
EAS are delighted to host Philip Raskin – Scottish Symphony, a major exhibition by one of Scotland’s most distinctive and collectable artists.
Philip Raskin was born in 1947 and studied at the Glasgow School of Art. He then entered the world of business and became well known as the proprietor of The Inn on the Green, a celebrated jazz restaurant in Glasgow over which he and his wife presided. He did not lose contact with the world of art however, as the venue doubled up as a quality gallery with a full programme of exhibitions and private views. After 20 years as a successful restaurateur, Philip returned to his easel and brushes on a full time basis. Over time, he has developed a painterly impasto style; using the texture of the paint and the shape of the brushwork, he gives each of his luminous landscapes its own reality, rather than allowing it to be a smooth window onto a world beyond. With a trademark soft palette and dramatic skies, the overall effect magically captures the textures, moods and changeable light of his native Scotland.
The exhibition runs from Saturday 1st November and daily except Sunday’s until Saturday 22nd November, and at other times by appointment. All works available for sale prior to exhibition opening.
MEET THE ARTIST SATURDAY 1ST NOVEMBER 12-3PM
