James Tweedie RGI

Born in 1951, Jim lives and works in Glasgow. He paints the urban landscape, the parkland and odd corners of the city, usually, though not always,Glasgow. A surrealist at heart he always looks for a sense of mystery, of possibility in the atmosphere of a place. This he attempts to convey by means of a ‘poetic’ image, which can be touching, threatening or humerous. He has had several solo exhibitions in Scotland, including Compass Gallery (1972, 1993, 2003 and 2006) and has taken part in all of the major mixed exhibitions and several important touring shows of Scottish Art abroad. His work is very popular both in Scotland and South of the Border.
