Artist Brian Scampton specializes in painting mostly coastal landscapes of the remote stretches of Donegal’s Inishowen Peninsula that lies between Lough Foyle and Lough Swilly, the largest peninsula on the island of Ireland, the Atlantic coast of which includes Ireland’s most northerly point, Malin Head.

His current collection of mainly coastal seascape paintings is the fruit of his many explorations, mostly on foot, of this region over a 15-year period. His work reflects the area’s ever-changing atmospheric effects, the elemental character of the coast and his personal responses to the effects of colour and the play of light and shadow on the land and sea.

The exhibition also includes a number of works inspired by his travels around the west coast of Donegal.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Brian Scampton attended North-West College of Technology (1981-85) and there developed his talent for drawing from life and his feeling for colour and mastery of oil painting, though it was many years before he finally decided to embark on a professional career as a full time artist.

Over the last two and half decades his works have been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions throughout Ireland, his last solo exhibition being at Tullyarvan Mill in Buncrana in 2004. He has also exhibited work in group exhibitions in rural Southern Japan where he spent some years living, travelling and painting.
