Thoughts and Contemplations
Gary Anderson, born in Glasgow, studied Drawing & Painting at Glasgow School of Art graduating in 1984 with a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art. He had early success, winning the John D Kelly Award in 1981. Further awards included D W T Cargill Award, in 1987, and Arthur Young Exhibitionship Prize, 1987 (solo exhibition in 1988), both at Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts. In 1989 he won the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award and the Arts in Fife Purchase Award, Fife House Collection.
On graduating Gary was selected to participate in the renowned Compass Gallery’s New Generation Show, who represented him at Art Fairs in Bath and London. His mixed exhibitions include the Open Eye Gallery and Mercury Gallery, Edinburgh; Art For Africa, City Art Centre, Edinburgh, 1985; Schweinfurt Touring Exhibition (West Germany), Open Circle, 1986; Ewan Mundy Fine Art, Works on Paper, New York, 1991; Scottish National Portrait Gallery, ‘Artists by Artists’, 1999.
He has had numerous annual solo exhibitions with Ewan Mundy Fine Art, Glasgow from 1990-2012. He exhibits with the RSW and RGI and currently with Gerber Fine Art, Glasgow.
Anderson’s work shows fine draughtsmanship, rich colour in the Glasgow tradition and a quirky imaginative streak, drawing on such sources as Chinese watercolours and the circus. His recent work includes a return to making constructions inspired by the tales of Moby Dick.
