Angus Stirling comes from a family to whom the arts, especially painting, have for several generations had an important place. His mother, grandfather and great grandfather were accomplished artists. Painting and a spirit of delight and enquiry in the visual arts were a central part of life in the family. On retirement from executive work he returned to painting, and studied with Robin Child at the internationally acclaimed Lydgate Art Research Centre in Wiltshire. His work is shown regularly at Catharine Miller’s Gallery, Hollywood Road , London SW10; and he has had two successful exhibitions at the Lynda Cotton Gallery in Watchet Somerset.
His interest in the relationship between music and painting draw on his years in opera and ballet, reflecting elements of rhythm, form, colour, tone and counterpoint integral to both genres. Using these precepts, Angus aims at a personal reincarnation of landscape, human form, architecture and still-life revealing a work of imagination.
