The Art of Arran Ross – Painting, Sculpture & Photography
Fidra Fine Art is pleased to present “The Art of Arran Ross”, a solo exhibition of Painting, Sculpture and Photography by the award winning Scottish artist Arran Ross.
Arran graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1987 with a BA(Hons) First Class in Sculpture then completed post graduate studies at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee emerging with a MA Public Art & Design. He has won various awards including the JD Fergusson Award, the Latimer Award from the RSA and in 2000 won an award from the prestigious Pollock Krasner Foundation in New York. He has participated in several solo shows including the Compass Gallery in Glasgow, the JD Fergusson gallery in Perth, and the Artemisia Gallery in Chicago as well as numerous group exhibitions including the annual exhibitions at the RSA and the RGI.
Drawing inspiration from such diverse sources as the great Surrealist artists Giorgio De Chirico and Magritte, the children’s television character, Mr Benn, his disdain of international aggression and state sponsored violence as well as the bleak beauty of his native Highland landscape, it is little wonder that Arran’s work has been described as enigmatic, Slightly Sinister (the title of a 1998 exhibition at the JD Fergusson Gallery in Perth) yet profoundly beautiful. Most widely known for his iconic renditions of Spacemen his work is infused with a distinctive style and humour which is both entertaining and thought provoking. Presented over three mediums, this exhibition demonstrates an impressive artistic dexterity.
As usual we are open 12-5 each weekend but are more than happy to open during the week but ask that you contact us ahead of your visit to ensure we are here. Hope you can make it along.
