Cyril Gerber Gallery, Glasgow.

Draw the name Fylle Christie out oi a hat and you might wonder what you had. Find out at the Cyril Gerber Gallery this month. There you will find a one-man show of delightlul drawings and paintings by this Glasgow artist, an unknown quantitiy in his own town.

Christie died in 1979 and apart lrom making murals had hardly ever exhibited his work. At Glasgow School of Art in the forties he was given the Newbery Medal and a scholarship which took him to Europe. He taught at Glasgow in the titties and then moved to London. While teaching, his private career continued on the easel.

But it is Christie’s drawings which engage immediately. They are sharp, yet relaxed, sure but modest. In one a young boy in a wheelchair draws

intently, Fyile Christie neither disturbs nor distorts him. In another drawing touched with watercolour, a girl poses hands held with Schiele thoughtiulness and eyes averted. His sitters seem to share Christie’s own shyness oi the public gaze.

It is always interesting when a whole body oi work surfaces lrom nowhere, Fyile Christie's is no disappointment. (AB)
