SANDY MURPHY RGI PAI


Our fourth solo exhibition with the esteemed Sandy Murphy RGI PAI opens on 1 September 2019. We are delighted to be once again showcasing his most recent collection of paintings.




Sandy Murphy was born in Ayrshire in 1956 and studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1976 until 1980. From his home and studio in West Kilbride, he pursues an intensely single-minded passion for paint and its involvement in his visual response to his native Ayrshire landscape.  




A pupil of James Robertson and Duncan Shanks at Glasgow School of Art, Sandy’s richly textured oils have clear antecedents in Ghillies and Eardley. His intimate, carefully considered works stand comparison with the best works of both these masters of Scottish painting.




He was elected to the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts (RGI) in 2000 and the Paisley Art Institute (PAI) in 2010.





Sandy Murphy's paintings are some of the most sought after in Scotland and the UK.

It continues until 29 September.
