Artist of the week
Cuillin Bantock

Bantocks holistic compositions unobtrusively divulge his inner mental process and workings. Allowing the viewer to take pleasure in their visual simplicity while remaining aware of their inward complexity.

His suppression of irrelevant or individual detailing engage with the painting process itself, paying particular attention to the sensuous qualities of the paint and its application. Rich, dense, 'fields' of colour blushing seamlessly into a deadening darkness, edged by contrasting vibrant tinges of underlying history.

Bantocks paintings are more like a record of the process by which they came to exist. An intriguing collection of problems and solutions triggers his emotional and intellectual responses. His use of gesture and mark giving the impression that the medium itself reveals some of the answers while constantly illuminating some of the questions. Each painting a link in a coherent chain, depicting a fleeting moment of clarity in his artistic journey.
