Cate Inglis

Cate Inglis is a Scottish painter and printmaker and the 2013 winner of the RGI Armour Award for Landscape Painting of Distinction. The recipient of two awards whilst attending Glasgow School of Art, since graduating she exhibits regularly in both solo and group exhibitions. She works from her home-studio in the West End of Glasgow surrounded by post-industrial inspiration. Of her work she says "My practice is concerned with the layers and structure of the urban landscape: the transience of the built environment in a relentless process of growth and change. Anonymous yet familiar, I focus on the mundane city streets...the overlooked and unnoticed details in a patchwork of grand houses, industrial wastelands, concrete offices and glittering new flats that fill the streets of our cities. I am drawn in by the illusion of permanence that we create for ourselves and the fragile nature of the recognisable city in a time of accelerating change. The surfaces of my paintings echo the structure of these complex layers. By constructing and peeling back layers of paper, I create delicately textured surfaces on which to paint, print and draw. The paper layers act as a metaphor for how thin and temporary everything we build ultimately is."

Amanda Phillips

Amanda originally trained as a painter before pursuing a career as a chartered architect. She went on to work as a university tutor at Edinburgh College of Art and Napier University for over a decade teaching architecture, graphic design, product design and drawing. She has won awards in both architecture and painting and now paints full time from her studio in Berwickshire. Of her work she says "I work mostly in acrylic but I like to experiment to keep my work fresh so use different media often on the same painting. Focus is landscape based and I paint the extraordinary in what may look an ordinary view. I use space and order and the conscious decision making process mixed with the fluidity and instinctive movement which comes from using paint."
