Duncan’s stylish sailing artistry.

By on November 14, 2012

On Saturday 17th November Gallery Three will be hosting one of the most exciting events in the Knutsford social calendar.

Between 2pm and 4pm the gallery will present an audience with celebrated British seascape artist Duncan Macgregor who will personally unveil his new collection of Limited Editions and unseen Original Paintings at a Champagne reception.

Duncan’s superb contemporary interpretations of life at sea have gained him a formidable international reputation. His painterly style is characterised by high-impact colour combinations which bring the natural world into sharp relief. From the rough surfaces and dazzling blues of a choppy ocean to gentle silken swathes of champagne coloured skies, his work gives expression to the many faces of the sea. These exhilarating displays verge on the abstract and the sheer creative energy illuminates the canvas.

Duncan’s work has been a consistent highlight in the gallery for many years and his latest work include includes a fascinating range of glass editions and a hand embellished gloss collection. Whilst his compositions have always had great drama, the almost metallic sheen and shimmering surface of these works gives an unprecedented impact to these ultra-stylish editions ranging from evocative coastal landscapes to sailing through the wind. To ensure that his artwork remains exciting, diverse and innovative, Duncan has always experimented with new mediums and surfaces upon which to paint and new coastal themes to capture.

Duncan is an experienced and adventurous sailor and his voyages have inspired much of his stunning work. This event represents an opportunity to come and chat to him about his fascinating experiences at sea and to view a dramatic exhibition of some of the most exhilarating artwork on the contemporary scene.

Owner Robin Whitehouse commented, “Duncan is a genuine star of the art world, but is also a highly approachable individual and a great friend of Gallery Three. He is a lovely guest and we shall enjoy introducing him to collectors over a glass or two of Champagne. I hope our friends in the area will all be coming along to meet him and take this unique opportunity to have a piece of artwork personally dedicated by such an illustrious artist.
