New exhibition

A BROUGHTY Ferry artist has returned to his roots for his latest exhibition.

John Bell opened his new collection entitled ‘Light of Two Seasons’ at the Eduardo Alessandro Studios in Broughty Ferry on Saturday.

It is an extraordinary record of the variety of colour and moods displayed through the landscape of Scotland.

Focusing on the seasonal extremes of summer and winter, John Bell has created a quite remarkable series of acutely observed portraits of both the familiar and spectacular.

He said: “I am often drawn to subjects that have elements of age and a past life.

“There is nothing quite like the old weather beaten boats and buildings found up and down the East Coast, and this fascination with the intriguing textures of decay.”

John was born in the Ferry in 1972 and attended Grove Academy before studying at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art.

Now living in rural Perth John since his graduation in 1993 has had a number of successful exhibitions across Scotland.
