25TH SEPTEMBER – 24TH OCTOBER 2021
The Big Cat Show
Gordon Corrins, a wildlife artist originally from Lanarkshire, shares his love of all things feline with his new show featuring a range of brand new, the majority never seen before, originals. From delightfully posed moggies
and exotic and unusual breed to the wildcats of Europe and Africa. And of course the exquisite big cats from around the globe. Two years in the making this show will bring to life some of the lesser know cats from around the world and showcase larger species with intricate detail and drama. Some describe Gordon’s work as photographic but he sees it as a representation of the animal, it’s characteristics and it’s personality. “My aim is to encourage the viewer to interact with the work and get up and close with these cats”.
Gordon has always had a passionate interest in wildlife conservation around the world and wanted to get involved in raising awareness of not only endangered species but also animal cruelty and mistreatment. Through his art he supports many animal charities, donating thousands of pounds through donations of originals and prints of his work.
As a wildlife artist he has taken part in many joint shows throughout the country and enjoyed success with his solo show in Edinburgh. Using his unique style which became his ‘eureka’ moment, a combination of the right
paint, a mixture of fluid acrylics and ink, the right surface which is a Kaolin clay covered board (from Ampersand Art) and experimental techniques with the airbrush and various erasers and blades, since then he has developed these techniques further to produce the kinds of textures and ‘life’ he had been looking for.
