Rogues’ Gallery

Scottish Field - - FIELD CULTURE -

An ex­hi­bi­tion from Scot­land’s cel­e­brated artist John Byrne will be on view in the Aca­demi­cians’ Gallery. Ti­tled Rogues’ Gallery, it presents a cast of mot­ley char­ac­ters, fash­ioned from mem­o­ries of Byrne’s child­hood grow­ing up in Pais­ley com­bined with his vast imag­i­na­tion. Fo­cus­ing on those who are of­ten over­looked, Byrne’s ‘rogues’ are brought from the pe­riph­ery of so­ci­ety into cen­tral view and fea­ture self-por­traits with Byrne pre­sent­ing him­self in nu­mer­ous dis­guises in­clud­ing that of a mariner and a se­cret agent.

17- 23 Novem­ber at The Royal Scot­tish Academy.
