Changing Horizons

by Purple Gallery | Birmingham
Date of event: 08/02/20 - 29/02/20
Artist: Colin Carruthers

This new exhibition throughout the month of February will feature a series of acrylic, oil and mixed media works on paper, board and canvas, created following Colin’s recent travels around the UK and Europe.

Colin was born in Antrim Town in Northern Ireland, where he spent most of his early childhood. He moved to Birmingham in 1985, studied Fine Art at Margaret Street and completed a B.A. Honours degree in 1997.

The significance of light and shade in creating an atmosphere, play an important part in Colin’s work and he is particularly interested in the interplay of light between water and sky. Colin likes to make trips to the countryside and coast and continues to draw inspiration from his travels. Over the past fifteen years he has travelled extensively to the Scottish Isles, the U.K., France and Spain.
