Lalng’s Painting Competition 20 Feb—12


Compass Gallery, Glasgow There is a strange mixture of innocence and experience at the Compass Gallery this month. James Gibson, an artist who took up painting with a degree in Art History and several years as an English teacher behind him, blends elements of the naive which artists like Beryl Cook use to such effect with an awareness of academic form and painterly technique. If is an uneasy alliance and his best are those which still lean towards his earlier, simpler style of large faces and enigmatic poses.

exhibition have little impact. Much of the figurative work, suggesting as does the influence of masters like Picasso and Spencer, as well as Scottish artists like Stephen Campbell and Neil MacPherson, does not reach the mark. Others are perky and attractive (like the little dog in Dog and houses) but slight. it seems Gibson is still selecting from a whole spectrum of choice and influence In search of new developments. Saxophonist at Harbour, one of the larger oils, is closest to reaching that goal. The man in pebbly blue has curiously puckered lips and the ship's flag behind blows In the breeze.
