Erinclare Scrutton

My creative journey began with an HND in ceramics at Harrogate and a Degree and PostGrad at GSA (1985-91). After art school, I took a different creative path and had a rich 30 year career as a drummer/percussionist.

During a month-long trip and painting course in St Ives I was inspired to return to artmaking and completed a very memorable 2 year course in Contemporary Art Practice at City College Glasgow in 2022.

The foundation of my creative practice involves the sometimes mundane yet essential act of turning up every day to develop and re-evaluate technical and creative skills through drawing, painting, observation and experimentation. I am particularly interested in finding and expressing the energy moment in my work, using the figure and landscape and through the exploration and manipulation of any mediums which fit the ideas.

During 2022 I had the privilege of spending a month on the Outer Hebrides, sparked by the desire to experience more ‘wilderness’ and very generous donations of money and accommodation. This turned out to be one of the most moving episodes in my life. At present I am still digesting this experience and some of the work presented here represents the beginning of trying to capture some of the spirit, freedom and energy that I encountered and felt in this magical landscape.
