Iain Faulkner, Sunset Reflection. Oil on canvas, 42" x 42"

Scottish artist Iain Faulkner graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1996 with a BA in Fine Art. He has had numerous solo shows in the UK, USA, France, Switzerland, Spain and Italy and his work appears in many private and corporate collections around the world. Currently only represented in the Pontone Gallery in London, this is a rare opportunity to see his work in Scotland and The Shoot is delighted to auction this very special painting entitled Sunset Reflection, which was completed especially for this event.

Set in Troon, looking over to Arran, the location was chosen primarily for the position of the setting sun and for the large expanse of wet sand and pooling water for the reflections. The painting is typical of Faulkner's style and depicts a single figure taking a moment to be by himself, at the end of the day, to reflect, his internal reflection mirrored in the physical reflections in the water. His work often shows rising or setting suns, which add both visual atmosphere and reinforce the idea of reflection on the day ahead or the day gone by. As with most of his paintings, the figure is an everyman and its meaning is left open to interpretation.                                                                             

Faulkner's work is in high demand and this stunning painting will make a great addition and investment to any private or corporate collection. Painting is 42" x 42" and framed in a contemporary black floating frame.
