Simon Laurie is a contemporary Scottish landscape and still life artist, whose paintings are characterised by references to Scottish life and society, incorporating fish, boats, religious symbols and everyday items. These objects are arranged upon a rich textural ground created by the application of multiple layers of acrylic paint. He has worked with acrylic paint for more than twenty years, developing his own individual style and fundamental visual language. Laurie was born in Glasgow and studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1982 to 1988. He was elected a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours in 1991 and the Royal Glasgow Institute in 2000, where he served as convener for six years. He has had many solo shows, both in the UK and abroad, and has won many prestigious and major awards. His work is held in many public, private and corporate collections, including Aberdeen Art Gallery, Contemporary Arts Society, London, Ferens Art Gallery, Hull, Freshfields, London, Nationwide Building Society, London, Royal Bank of Scotland, T.S.B Headquarters, London, Unilever P.L.C and Walter Scott Investments Ltd, Edinburgh. Selected awards include PAI Diplomates Award, 2013, Sir William Gillies Award, RSW, 2012, Glasgow Art Club Fellowship Award, RGI, 2011, CRM Society Collioure Residency, 2009, May Marshall Brown Award, R.S.W, 2008, Panter and Hall Award, P.A.I, 2007, Alexander Graham Munro Award, R.S.W, and John Cunningham Award, R.G.I in 2002.
