Scottish Art and Artists at Red Rag Gallery
Artist: John BELL

John Bell was born in Ayr, Scotland in 1968 . His early days were spent growing up in Fife where he painted from a young age but chose to pursue a career in Architecture. John graduated from The Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow in 1993. Since then he has worked as an architect but has continued to paint and exhibit art work having undergone further study at Glasgow School of Art.

John Bell paints mainly landscapes and seascapes of Scotland, particularly along the Ayrshire coast. He is fascinated in the influence of the sky, using bold brushwork to express its changing mood and atmosphere. His paintings capture the extremes of light and colour in the Scottish landscape, from intimate woodland scenes to expansive shorelines. Whether John Bell is painting an intimate woodland scene or an expansive shoreline, his carefully composed oil paintings are always carefully crafted and communicate a strong atmospheric feel to each subject.

John Bell has developed a very distinctive, light style with an appealing colour palette successfully reflecting the coolness of the Scottish light. He is interested in the influence of the constantly changing weather, which can transform the mood in a moment. The sky often dominates his paintings and he uses bold brushwork to express the form and movement of cloud.

John Bell paintings are exhibited at a growing number of Scottish art galleries including Paisley Art Institute. His art work has also featured at a number of Art Fairs. John Bell has been represented by Red Rag Gallery since 2011.

This is the Seascape art page from Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery featuring the best in contemporary Scottish art. Throughout the year Red Rag features Scottish art from artists who specialise in creating fine Seascape paintings. Today is no exception you will find Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery has an extensive collection of Seascape art and paintings by leading contemporary artists.

Human beings have always had an intimate relationship with the water. Given the amount of the earth’s surface which is covered in water and the often unpredictable and life-changing nature of the sea, it is little wonder that seascapes have been such a popular subject for so long and no surprise that seascape paintings have an important place in the history of art.

Seascape paintings have a long history in both the Eastern and Western worlds.The walls of homes have been adorned with seascape paintings since the art of the secular painting first began to overtake religious works in numbers and importance.

As a country with an extensive coastline, paintings of seascapes have always had a special attraction to Scottish artists. All the seascape paintings at Red Rag showcase the talent of Scottish painters and their ability to depict changing light on water and rapidly altering climatic conditions. Many of the Scottish artists who have painted these seascape paintings are also talented landscape painters, or worked in other genres as well as seascapes, such as still life or portraiture.
