Charlie Baird

Scratching the Surface

21 April - 12 May 2018

In these recent paintings Dorset based Charlie Baird continues his exploration of landscape from the southwest and his native Scotland. Referencing memory of place, time and light, they range from the figurative to a more abstracted sense of mood through texture and composition. Whether translating the fleeting light upon a landscape or exploring the history beneath its surface, these paintings evoke a lyrical balance between these themes.

One Hundred Thousand Cuts (and other stories)

24 February - 24 March 2018

One Hundred Thousand Cuts (and other stories) is my third solo show at The Art Stable. Each picture is a narrative, an evocation of the landscape rather than a diligent reproduction of the view. There is always a story to the scene, the intention is for the viewer to enter and find it. This appeals to my deep seated enjoyment of all those illustrated stories I read at as a child. As an artist I look for this same quality but my attention is also drawn to the lie and flow of the land, unexpected colour, traces of past use (modern or ancient), texture and form.
