Joe Hargan PAI PPAI
Saturday 25th October to Sunday 2nd November 2014, from 11.00am to 5.00pm daily.
Joe Hargan returns for his second Solo Show.
Hargan is one of Scotland's most senior painters. His main artistic focus is on the character 'Sniffy', who is haughty, bumptious but instantly likeable. The setting is always a stately home with classic paintings on the wall, 'paintings within paintings', such as a Canaletto/s or a Gainsborough. Through a series of humorous narratives or playlets, we gain an insight to Sniffy's world and character - his boredom, petty indulgences and how he uses his imagination, when he has his home and his pets to himself. Hargan uses various symbols that engage us with his paintings and he invites us to play with and unwind his enjoyable stories.
The show will also show Hargan's broader capabilities including his powerful figurative studies and his work with abstraction.
