Paul Furneaux, Compass Gallery, Glasgow
With the sun set clearly in his line of vision, Furneaux is an artist who ploughs a mystical path, finding it populated by giant shells and angels, empty Iongboats and disembodied laces. Graduating from Edinburgh College of Art only two years ago. he is confident of his direction and liberal with his imagination.
Furneaux returns from a year spent in Paris courtesy of the Miller Homes ‘Young Scottish Artist of the Year' award, with no visible traces of the city or its influence in his new work. His poetic landscapes, all timeless places are more related to the sea, northern lights and legends. Furneaux it seems

is searching for a very personal vocubulary, a voice in the tradition of artists like William Blake and closerto
- home, John Maxwell.
While there is much effort in this work, Furneaux often suffers from giving away too much, either by over-drawing or by crowding the composition until it becomes sweet and superficial. Too many dainty eyelashes, too many hidden eyes, too many blank, emerging faces. But some of the paintings in this exhibition show
that he can achieve a dense composition without resorting to
clutter. Sun Carrier: Moon Carrier does justthis, achieving a quiet mystery. Sea Angel takes that a step further. In this small but graceful painting, one
face, painted as grave as an icon, rides a dove through waves like the prow of a
ship. (Alice Bain)
