Artist Crush: Alan Shipway

Sunday, January 13, 2013 · No Comments

It’s hard not to be captivated by the optimism and creative expression in the work of Edinburgh artist Alan Shipway.

“To me the whole point, the beginning and end of painting, is that in itself it can be a kind of sanctuary – that it can radiate untroubledness, and point to something beyond the realities or mundane aspects of everyday life…” – Alan Shipway

“I think my ideal in painting is for it to radiate feelings of clarity… To me there is a value in clarity as such – there is a value in the capacity of paintings to radiate untroubledness and gravity of significance – an ideal that paintings should in a way dignify the space they inhabit.” – Alan Shipway
