Third Eye Centre, Glasgow
Pat Douthwaite’s biography begins in earnest at the age at seven. Then, as a child in Glasgow, she took dancing lessons from the ilamboyant, tree spirit Margaret Morris, partner of painter J.D. Fergusson. It was Fergusson who introduced the young woman to painting and since then she has ploughed no iurrow but her own. No art college certificate. No teaching timetables. Douthwaite’s imagination has had a rigorous and by the expression in some oi her paintings, perhaps painful training—with that her imagination is untrammelled.
In this retrospective exhibition which brings together work irom the titties to the eighties, Douthwaite is presented at once as an artist oi personal intensity and universal mystery. She is outspoken in paint. Not atraid to shout out the names at her heroes Janis Joplin, Gwen John, Amy Johnson. Not atraid to iollow her wobbly black line towards iigures sometimes threatening in their inhumanity, sometimes cartoon-like in their humour.
The iigure has always vented her passion. During the sixties, seventies and figure-crazy eighties, Douthwaite has side-stepped her characters only to look at animals. Cat, goat and zebra she paints with equal energy, noting the slit at an eye and the twitch of a tail.
Landscape is evident only as breast or buttocks or a sleeping cat.
There are temale gods at the
beginning oi this exhibition and a cat 1 having a kitten at the end at it. The first
