After studying painting at Glasgow School of Art Steven became a recording artist as frontman of 80s band The Big Dish, releasing albums with Virgin, Earner Brothers and EMI to great acclaim. He has since returned to art school, where in 2010 he was shortlisted for the The Aspect Prize, Scotland's most prestigious painting award. He is now a full time figurative painter with a contemporary twist to his style.
Most of his work is figurative and focuses on light, structure and composition. We're thrilled to be showcasing his new collectio, which deals with vunerability, continuous passage, flow and isolation and features striking images of swimmers, pilots and pilgrims. Steven believes that painting is a process of mark making and as such these marks should be evident in the finished piece.
Steven's work has been described as, 'like revisiting Vermeer in the Dutch Golden Age of painterly skill against the Colour Field of Rothko, all intertwined with an aesthetic twist of contemporary, complex-simplicity. Lindsay uses his paintbrush eloquently, capturing painterly conversations between the art history giants of a bygone age and a bygone art."
