Alasdair Lindsay 'Shorelines'

30 August - 25 September 2017

I first saw Alasdair Lindsay’s paintings at Falmouth College of Art’s graduate show for Fine Art in 1999. Despite being a recent graduate, Alasdair was already an accomplished artist, and leaving a note for him tucked into his sketchbook, I suggested he come to the gallery (where I was working as Art Director at the time) to meet me and now, 18 years after first seeing that graduate show in Falmouth, and opening my own gallery Cornwall Contemporary 11 years ago, I have sold hundreds of his paintings and Alasdair has amassed a large number of ardent admirers and collectors of his work worldwide.

There is something about Alasdair’s paintings that really resonates with people. I have customers who have bought numerous paintings by Alasdair and his work can be found in private collections in homes all over the world. From Alasdair’s 2016 exhibition alone at Cornwall Contemporary, we packed up and shipped off paintings to Switzerland, San Francisco and Germany as well as across the UK.

He has racked up accolades along the way – winning 2nd prize in the prestigious Hunting Art Prize in 2000, 2004 and 2005. He was commissioned to produce a number of paintings in 2002 for display on the luxury Cunard liner Queen Mary II. In 2007 his work was exhibited in the Singer Freidlander Sunday Times Watercolour Competition at Mall Galleries, London. He was recently shortlisted for the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize along with the Jacksons Art Prize, where he was placed among the best 25 painters from over 2000 artists worldwide.

With each exhibition, Alasdair’s style and aesthetic grows and it has been a pleasure working alongside him and watching his career thrive and flourish. His ability to entirely capture a recognisable scene, wherever it may be of, and yet present it in such a unique, vibrant and unexpected way has led to him becoming one of the UK’s most exciting contemporary landscape painters.
