ABOUT THE ARTIST

Tom Mabon

It is twenty-five years since I first exhibited work with the Rendezvous Gallery. Many things come and go, especially so in the Art world, however all at 100 Forest Avenue has remained constant.

Living on the Black Isle is similar, changing with each passing season yet every year reassuringly familiar.

This small tract of land sandwiched between the Cromarty and Moray Firths has proved to be a very fertile source of inspiration.

Anthony Campbell

Anthony trained at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee in the early ‘60s under the celebrated academicians Alberto Morrocco, David Mclure and James Mackintosh Patrick. A further year was spent obtaining a teaching qualification. After teaching for 31 years in Tayside, Anthony took early retirement and returned to painting full-time.

A lover of outdoor pursuits, Anthony has taken the Scottish landscape as his source of inspiration, working mainly in oils. The artist prefers to work ‘alla prima’, I.E. ‘in one go’, directly from the subject regardless of the weather. He feels that the only sure way of capturing the mood of the subject, while cre-ating a feeling of spontaneity in the work, is to be in the environment itself. His favourite location is the Scottish west coast, especially the western isles, and he often travels to places of particular interest by kayak or bicycle.

Having exhibited extensively throughout Scotland and in London, his works are found in private collections in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia and Europe.
