Geoff Uglow British, b. 1978

Biography

Geoff Uglow was born and raised in Cornwall and trained at the Glasgow School of Art. 

He is one of the greatest painting talents to emerge from Glasgow School of Art in recent years. He won the prestigious Alastair Salvesen Art Scholarship for painting and travel in 2009 and used his time to journey around the coast of Scotland in the footsteps of famous eighteenth-century painter William Daniell. This body of work was then exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy.

 

Based in rural Cornwall, Uglow looks to nature for inspiration. Several times Uglow has diarised the passing year with painted colour notes expressing the passage of the seasons by pinning the essence of a particular day. He describes many of his paintings as "a handwritten letter, a moment, which can suspend disbelief, a fragment of vanished beauty." His work is features in multiple key museums like the Royal Scottish Academy, Kelvingrove Museum and the Royal Glasgow Institute.
