Philip Duthie

Born Aberdeen 1957.
Educated at Aberdeen Grammar School 1962-1975, Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen 1975-1979.
Awards : 1983 Scottish Arts Council- Young Artists Bursary, 1989 SAC Amsterdam Studio Bursary, 1992 Grizedale Society Bursary.
My work has been shown in many solo and group exhibitions including The Royal Scottish Academy, The Society of Scottish Artists, Aberdeen Artists Society, The Warwick Arts Trust in London and as far afield as Croatia and Poland.
Examples of my work are in several Public and Corporate Collections including the City Arts Centre, Edinburgh, Aberdeen Art Gallery, Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, Grampian Hospitals Arts Trust, the Persevere Arts Fund and Standard Life PLC.
In my paintings I try to capture the luminous quality of the light where the sea meets the land around Scotland’s coasts, from the silvery greys of the North Sea to the almost Mediterranean blues and greens of the Western fringes and the Hebridean Islands. Heavily worked layers of rich glowing pigment are scraped back to reveal underpainted colours reflecting the fluid undulation of tides and clouds.
