After graduating from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen, Scotland. I exhibited through Scotland with some success. From this period my interest in anatomy, natural form, color, and the essential idea that the universe held to aesthetic qualities of elegance throughout, shaped my life and work.
Moving to America, multimedia explorations were synthesized into my traditional framework of painting, as was the use of some airbrush techniques. naturally geography had its effect on scale color and other issues. However, art essentially remained as a vehicle of inner inspirations which rose from within me.
Mostly works are slow to produce but ultimately I have come to think it is the viewer who completes an artwork. Audiences come from all stripes, some commenting briefly while others explore more deeply. Collectors have included, the Earl of Cawdor, Ambassador Sanchez to the Americas, and Paul Ku internet entrepeneur.
Sometimes though, its best not to say too much, allowing people to find what they may. I hope you enjoy these works. Thanks for your time and Best wishes, Derek.
