Paris 7.48pm by Iain Faulkner Limited Edition Print

Glasgow Artist

Iain Faulkner, a Scottish artist born in Glasgow in 1973, has always stayed true to his roots. After graduating from the esteemed Glasgow School of Art in 1996, Faulkner embarked on a journey that deviated from the trendy and contemporary art scene embraced by his fellow artists. Instead, he chose the path of figurative painting, a challenging route that allows for a straightforward assessment of his competence, draughtsmanship, and painterly skills, flaws and all.

Fine Art Painter

Despite his relatively young age, Faulkner has achieved immense success in his career. His last four exhibitions in London and New York were met with overwhelming demand, as every limited edition print showcasing his powerful and visually striking portrayals sold out. This undeniable appreciation and interest from the public is a testament to Faulkner’s talent.

Faulkner’s paintings captivate viewers with their lack of narrative and instead rely solely on their visual impact. Each artwork freezes a moment in time, characterised by serenity, introspection, and perhaps a hint of melancholy. These emotions are further intensified through the skilled use of chiaroscuro, creating a striking contrast between light and dark tones.

The stillness portrayed in Faulkner’s everyday scenes evokes a sense of inner-reflection. The formal and self-absorbed demeanor of his youthful subjects accentuates this feeling, heightened by the interplay of light and shadows that emphasize their emotional detachment.

For the first time, Faulkner includes charcoal drawings in his exhibition, showcasing his mastery in both drawing techniques and the essential understanding of tone control. These drawings offer a glimpse into Faulkner’s creative process, peeling back the layers to reveal the depth behind his paintings without the need for words like “delve” or “conclusion.” This new addition serves as evidence of Faulkner’s talent and further solidifies his position as an exceptional artist.

About The Artist

Iain Faulkner was born in Glasgow in 1973 where he was raised and educated. Iain Faulkner graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1996 with a BA (Honours) Degree in Fine Art.

From the onset of Iain Faulkner’s professional career, the fashionable and trendy routes of contemporary and conceptual art, adopted by many of his peers, was not an option.  Iain Faulkner chose instead to follow the more difficult and demanding path of figurative painting wherein clear, concise yardsticks of competence, draughtsmanship and painterly skills can be measured and judged, warts and all.

At the age of twenty-nine, the result of his endeavours during his relatively short career has brought a considerable measure of success with his last four shows in London and New York selling out which is clearly indicative of the public’s appreciation and interest in his work.

Faulkner’s paintings are concerned with the portrayal of strong and powerful images relying on visual impact as there is rarely any narrative.

They are about capturing calm and contemplative moments, intimate exchanges, solitude, sometimes melancholy, heightened in their resonance by the use of chiaroscuro. Faulkner’s use of this technique gives a stark contrast between the light source and the often dark tonality found in his paintings.

There is a stillness in the everyday themes which conveys a sense of inner-reflection. This is accentuated by the formality of his young self-engrossed characters and emphasised by the light and shadows reinforcing their emotional detachment.

His charcoal drawings, included for the first time in a Faulkner show, are testament to his draughtsmanship; his awareness and acknowledgement of the prime importance of drawing and control of tone and to the peeling back of layers of paint thus revealing an insight into his creative process.
