Art - by Gary Craig

Based in Galloway, Gary Craig presents a small but caried collection of original paintings over summer at BELTIE BOOKS & Café.

Every artist should be able to paint anything, but over time we tend to focus on the area that intrigues or attracts us most. Mine is the human form, be it portraiture or figurative. The journey of an artist never ends and the secrets that unfold in time are worth waiting for.

When I undertake a portrait commission, the essence of the subject has to be captured, and I think this is down to being aware of the very subtle actions and expressions that make each person unique. At times this is almost imperceptible, but it is certainly there.  Time and observation reveal all.”
