Michael Scott (d. 2006)
Michael Scott, born 1946, was brought up in the fishing towns of Peterhead and Hull before studying in the port city of Liverpool and teaching in the ship building city of Glasgow. The motif of water, fish and fishing comes, then, as no surprise in his work but so too does social critique, symbolism and reflections of the human condition.
They are all aspects of his intellectual and artistic thinking.
In 1978 Michael first exhibited his work at the Royal Glasgow Institute and would continue to show at their annual exhibition until 1992, receiving the prestigious David Cargill Sr award in 1989.
During the 1980s and 90s his paintings were frequently accepted for Exhibition in the Summer Show at the Royal Academy in London and at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh.
He exhibited at the Fosse Gallery from the mid 1990s and had several successful Solo Exhibitions up to his sad and untimely death in 2006.
