IAN McKENZIE SMITH CBE FRSA FRSE PPRSA PPRSW RGI LLD HRA HRHA HRUA HRWA DArt
Dr Ian McKenzie Smith (b1935) studied at Grays School of Art, Aberdeen from 1953-1958.
Ian McKenzie Smith’s work shows his continuing commitment to a distinctly personal brand of landscape based abstraction: a subtle evocative way of painting that owes something to Eastern
traditions, as well as the American colour-field painters of the 1950’s.
A travelling scholarship took him to Paris, where he met the Japanese artist Kenzo Okada and encountered Zen philosophy. An oriental sense of balance and calligraphic finesse has been a feature of his work ever since.

In his own humorous words "Apart from this .... I'm quite a nice bloke !"
NOTE - Ian McKenzie Smith has 6 paintings in the show - only four are shown.
Colin Brown trained at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee from 1982-1987 achieving a BA (Hons) and a Post Graduate Diploma.
His work is primarily mixed media on panel - collage and acrylic paint.
Having spent time living and painting in Europe (four years in Dusseldorf and 4 months on Florence), Brown has developed an international reputation.
His paintings pull together random elements and fragments into closely controlled compositions. They run a fine line between impulse and calculation and typically explore human history, urban imagery and popular modern culture.
They exploit the Dadaist ideal of looking at society in fragments.
