Crawfurd Adamson

My work is almost entirely based around the human figure. I paint it obsessively. My paintings are a fusion of colour and shape that create an abstract design, but without compromising the academic integrity of the drawing. I use figures individually or in large group scenes that create a strange, atmospheric, implied narrative. My ideas come from everywhere, reading, observation and imagination.

Education
  • Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee 1971 - 76 I had the good fortune to study srawing and painting at Dundee under many outstanding tutors who were eminent artists in their own right and had the ability to help each of us develop in our own ways. The course was largely centred around drawing from the figure, which was seen as essential and which I still practise and enjoy.
  • Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee 1971 - 76 I had the good fortune to study with many tutors who were eminent artists in their own right and who nutured each of us towards our individual goals. The course was quite formal and centred heavily around life drawing, which still inspires and excites me.
