OPEN EYE GALLERY, EDINBURGH • 27th April - 14th May 2018
BACK with BLACK
'This exhibition is Scouller's 50th solo show since leaving the Glasgow School of Art in 1973
For various reasons it is also a small landmark for the artist, as more than three decades ago he made the conscious decision to remove black from his palette. Painting in warm exotic locations this seemed an obvious choice. However nothing stands still and after much reflection and turning his attention to subject matter closer to home he has decided to reintroduce black into the mix.
To his delight this has opened up a whole panoply of new sonorous colours and moods. Painting his family and immediate surroundings we are excited to see where this painterly journey may eventually lead.'
