Gerard M. Burns

Gerard M Burns is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art's internationally renowned painting department. Burns has over the past few years established himself as a powerful new force in Scottish figurative painting. Constantly in demand here in the UK, his work is now increasingly sought after by collectors around the world.

Working with a bold palette on a massive scale Burns' canvases still manage to convey an almost domestic intimacy, possibly because he paints what he knows. Relatives, friends and neighbours are all used as models and are painted in the rich dark tones which reflect his environment.

As the Artist himself says; "I believe that there is a thirst out there for an art that people can relate to. They are tired of being embarrassed by feeling they don't understand art. The fact is that most people do have an intuitive feel for what is "good and bad" in art. The problem is that most of what is now called contemporary art is so self indulgent and trivial that it is of no consequence to anyone other than to the artist who created it. In my work, I think people see something which they can relate to - instantly. Only then, once the viewer's imagination has been captured, is there any hope that one can convey or communicate any underlying theme or message."
