Scottish Art and Artists at Red Rag Gallery
Artist: Joan GILLESPIE

Joan Gillespie was born in Dundee in 1954. She studied painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art Dundee and completed a Diploma course at Edinburgh College of Art. Her artistic training at college benefited from studying under Alberto Morrocco and also with Sir Robin Philippson

Joan had an affinity for the art works of some of the Impressionists, the Nabis, the Newlyn School, the Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists. Other influences have been modern masters of Fauvism - Derain, Matisse and Cezanne. Composition, paint quality and colour distribution in painting have always been very important to her.

The diversity of Joan Gillespie’s work is quite extraordinary. It ranges from enchanting collection of Portraits, Figurative works, Landscapes and Still Life. Her fresh-faced portraits definine the essence of feminine grace and beauty. She captures the cool, calm poses of young women through the simplicity of quick, broad brushstrokes with just a couple of lines.

Joan has a bold, vibrant approach to the use of colour, both in palette choice and wild, carefree application. Despite the vibrancy of tone and texture, her art works are both evocative and quiet in their composition and execution.

Since 2021 Joan Gillespie has been exclusively represented by Red Rag Gallery. Her works are in numerous collections throughout the UK and private art collections in Spain, Australia and USA.

This is the Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery website page for Portrait paintings from leading contemporary artists. Red Rag Gallery has a great collection of contemporary Scottish Art which extends to Portrait paintings. The art of Portrait painting has existed for centuries. Historically, portrait paintings were primarily commissioned by the rich and powerful. More recently portraits are more likely to be of families and colleagues and are commissioned by individuals, governments, corporations, groups and clubs.

Each featured artist in Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery portfolio of contemporary Portrait paintings can be viewed by clicking on the artist name. Information on price, size and availability for portrait paintings can be viewed by clicking on the image of each portrait.

Each contemporary Portrait painting shown on the Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery website has been sourced from the art studio of artist. This guarantees you that the paintings are genuine pieces of contemporary art from the artist.

Many Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery artists are available to undertake your own portrait commissions. A portrait commission is a special and very personal art piece. It is useful to remember when you commission a portrait that you are engaging in an interpretation of the sitter through the eyes of the artist. Visiting the artist, seeing work 'in the flesh' and talking through details of the portrait commission is all part of the portrait painting process. Portraiture artists at Red Rag include Darren Baker, David Cobley , Simon Davis and Charles Hardaker

To view the Portrait art work of each artist simply click on the artist's name or image. If you would like to purchase or require further information about Red Rag Scottish Art portrait paintings please contact the gallery.
