Iain Faulkner was born in Glasgow in 1973 where he was raised and educated. Iain’s paintings are concerned with the portrayal of strong and powerful images, relying on visual impact as there is rarely any narrative. The paintings are about capturing calm and contemplative moments, intimate exchanges, solitude, sometimes melancholy, heightened in their resonance by the use of chiaroscuro. His use of techniques gives a stark contrast between the light source and the often dark tonality found in his paintings.
