Dates, Times and Prices


Duncan Shanks finds his subject in his riverside garden in the Clyde Valley, painting the changing seasons with an emotional engagement that chronicles the constant cycle of loss and renewal. The artist writes: 'My subject is nature and the transience of nature. To find that which endures in that which fades. To paint not just the objects, not just the tree, the flower, the cloud and the bird, but how they move and change in time.'
