I'm not a fan of the word quirky so I'm having a root around in my thesaurus for something better.
|Stranded Captain and Skipper|
Unconventional, idiosyncratic, hmmm not happy with these either. Gordon Wilson's paintings are often described this way, but I think they are narratives.
One look, and there is a story unfolding, unlike anything else you will see that day.
|A Cat on a Belty's Back|
Not only are they beautifully painted, but you are drawn into the artist's world, which looks like a pretty joyous place to be.
|Beach Boy and The Bird|
Gordon Wilson is well known for his landscape painting, delighting in the light and beauty around us. But I think these narrative paintings compliment beautifully. They come from within and allow us to have a little more insight into the artist.
|Wee Gee and The Big Bumble Bee|
And he is incredibly quirky!
The exhibition continues until 31 March.
Thanks for reading!
