Commended Award at Aberdeen Artists Society 2011

My painting was awarded a commended award at the Aberdeen Artists Society Exhibition 2011 on now at The Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum.

The painting, titled "The Burns Supper" is an oil on canvas triptych painting measuring 300x130cm (my largest work to date). The work was started in September 2010 when I opened The Nicole Porter Gallery in Aberdeen. Visitors to the gallery over the past six months have been able to see this work throughout its creation, giving much appreciated feedback at each stage.

The Aberdeen Artists Society Exhibition opens today, Saturday the 30th April and will close on Saturday the 28th of May 2011.

  1. As an artist myself, I enjoy reading Philip Koch's sensitive writing about Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, who along with Whistler and Rothko, are my favorite American painters.
    I don't live in the United States but have traveled and passed a short time there. But even with the little time spent in your beautiful country, especially in small-town America, I can relate to some of the poetical feel that Hopper and Wyeth had captured in their art, which is for me part of the attraction of their paintings.
    Browsing at the other day, as I do now and then, I find a good selection of Edward Hopper's work, ,in the big archive of Western Art, that customers can order online for canvas prints and even hand-painted, oil-painting reproductions can be made and sent to them.
    Hopper's surrealistic and depersonalized world is there again. Timeless, yes, as it is still there now in the roadside cafes and diners that I ate at all over America.
