Signature Style

Working from observation, Gavin seeks to find a present truth through realism. Whether capturing landscapes, portraits, Still Life, urban scenes or trees, Gavin hones his signature painterly technique - one that approaches abstraction through experimenting with depth of field and challenging viewpoints. A key focus in Gavin's work is Scottish topography, where the artist is based. His panoramic vistas offer dynamic and dramatic sweeping landscapes, often presented from multiple perspectives.
