This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust.
A Scottish painter whose work focuses primarily with the figure, Anthony’s art focuses on the flesh and soul of the human body. Expressing, through the figure, the depths of the psyche, as well as the beauty of the flesh.
The work mirrors a world that finds humanity searching for meaning in the face of crisis. Identity and place and a search for belonging thread through his work, where we find the subjects of his paintings enmeshed in the expression of their human condition.
Drawing on the tradition of the chiaroscuro of Rembrandt, the spirituality of Giacometti, and the distortion of Bacon these painters are a springboard into a new dynamic within Anthony’s paintings. Paint merges with the body, the spaces in between infused with a weight that often becomes as important as the subjects themselves, in what could be described as a ‘soulscape.’
In 2007 Anthony Scullion was appointed a member of the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts (RGI). Flying Colours Gallery held Anthony Scullion's fifth Solo Exhibition with the gallery in the spring of 2011.
