Paul Reid is a artist who uses his skill to create a world which is both beautiful and uncompromising in its vision. He’s considered one of the greatest figurative painters to have emerged out of Scotland in recent years and continues to receive much deserved recognition as an important figure in Scottish contemporary art.

His seventh solo exhibition at The Scottish Gallery, Mythos continues the artist’s much-praised exploration of mythological subjects, including characters from both Classical and Celtic traditions.

The heightened reality resulting from the artist’s meticulous approach requires careful consideration as each painting or drawing is open to individual interpretation.

Mythos by Paul Reid opens on Wednesday 30th October and runs until 26th November 2019 | The Scottish Gallery 16 Dundas Street Edinburgh EH3 6HZ | Opening Times: Monday-Friday, 10.00am – 6.00pm, Saturday: 10.00am – 4.00pm, Sunday, closed| Web: scottish-gallery.co.uk
