Alasdair Lindsay

24 October - 17 November 2018

Alasdair Lindsay – Islands and Bridges 2018

Alasdair Lindsay was born in Cheshire in 1975.
He came to Cornwall in 1996 to study at Falmouth College of Art and has remained ever since.
His paintings are based on what he sees everyday. He studies these places regularly and sometimes sketches on site,
although Alasdair usually paints from memory and through experimentation. His studio work is down to decisions based on instinct rather than theory, and aerial views have become a regular compositional element in his paintings.

Alasdair’s work has been garnering increasing acclaim and in 2002 he was commissioned to produce 12 paintings and 312 prints of those paintings for permanent display on the luxury Cunard Line Queen Mary II.
In 2004 he won 2nd prize in the prestigious Hunting Art Prize and was also selected to exhibit in the Hunting Art Prize in 2000, 2004 and 2005. In 2007 his work was exhibited in the Singer Freidlander Sunday Times Watercolour Competition at Mall Galleries, London. One of his paintings was featured on the cover of Coast Magazine, with an accompanying 6 page feature in February 2018 and his work has also been shortlisted in the prestigious Jacksons Art Prize for the last 2 years running.

‘Islands and Bridges’ is Alasdair’s 12th exhibition at Cornwall Contemporary, and includes places where the artist has spent time throughout 2018 including Iceland and the Isles of Scilly. Alasdair’s paintings are becoming more highly sought after each passing year. His paintings are regularly shipped off all over the UK and to Switzerland, USA, Germany and many other places worldwide after each show.

The hardback book ‘Shorelines’ was published in 2017 to coincide with his solo exhibition at Cornwall Contemporary, and signed copies are available from the gallery.
