ANGUS FERNIE

https://www.angusfernie.com/

Glasgow painter Angus Fernie (b. 1996) studied Painting and Printmaking at the Glasgow School of Art graduating with a First Class Honours in 2018. 

His work is strongly grounded in two firm beliefs; the notion that representational painting is not ‘dead’ as many claim and the idea that everything is, to some degree, very silly. Playing with the idea of the representational, the works verge on the abstract using motifs and symbols such as vases, wine bottles and plants. The motifs exist almost as figures in their own right giving these somewhat trivial objects anthropomorphic qualities. Making reference to the history of serious figurative painting, his work aims to invert this, making work for the ‘meme’ generation. 

Awards include the James Nichol Mcbroom prize, holding his work in the GSA archive. Previous exhibitions in Glasgow include; ‘Lets Limbo’ 2016 at SWG3, '25% Extra’ 2016 at the Laurieston Arches, ‘Wing Dings’ 2017 at Where the People Sleep, ‘Series 3’ 2017 at the Glue Factory, ‘Best of Degree Show’ 2018 at the Six foot Gallery and ‘House Guests’ 2018 at the Hampton Court Guest House. He also recently was part of the 'FBA Futures 2019' exhibition at The Mall Galleries, London.
