Quirky or Narrative?

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.



When All Around Are Losing Theirs


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!
