Had a photo shoot for a portrait in Glasgow this weekend and managed to catch up with the rather lovely and talented Janice Curless , artist/educator Iain Connell, painter Iain Carby and musician/lazy artist Steven Urquhart.
All went well until I fell asleep on the Glasgow to Ediburgh train and ended up back in Glasgow... im now in Edinburgh at my pal Kirsty's pad until I can get a train to Yorkshire tomorrow. bummer.
"Dylan Lisle’s work maintains a contemporary dynamism through his old masterly representations of the female form. Knots and swathes of vibrant, passionate fabric envelope his sensuous figures, or otherwise are the subject of larger studies, which draw upon chiaroscuro, reminiscent of Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Rubens. His work is instantly approachable, engagingly serene and romantically charged; traits that have not gone unnoticed in the art world he inhabits.
Fresh from his first London solo exhibition, Dylan Lisle spearheads a modern movement of artists, whose desire it is to capture light in all its glorious subtleties, texture in its infinite tactile qualities and the female form in its evasive beauty." Hope Robertson, 2007
