Glasgow Print Studio is pleased to present the sixth in a series of exhibitions bringing together the outstanding work of four well-respected Royal Scottish Academicians - Philip Braham, Victoria Crowe, Paul Furneaux, Wendy McMurdo. Ghost orchids coalesce out of the darkness, forms flicker through a snowy landscape and the natural world finds its way into ours through printmaking, painting, photography and sculptural forms in this broad ranging survey of work by four artists at the height of their practise.

Braham's paintings and photographs capture the beauty and fragility of the natural world, while Crowe's work explores the boundaries between representation, reflection, and surface. Furneaux's woodblock prints are inspired by the Japanese Mokuhanga tradition, and McMurdo's experimental photographs capture the fleeting beauty of plants and flowers.

Philip Braham is a Scottish artist whose paintings recall the Northern Romantic tradition in which the landscape reflects aspects of the human condition. Fidelity to experience is fundamental to his practice, developing from a phenomenological immersion in landscape that discloses nature as timeless and our mortal existence as preciously short.

Philip Braham graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 1980, and completed a Postgraduate at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Holland the following year. He then undertook a year of research as visiting artist at the University of California at Los Angeles before returning to his native Scotland. In 1989 he joined the stable of Raab Gallery (London and Berlin) and later, BCA Gallery, London.

His career includes 26 solo exhibitions to date, in addition to numerous group shows both nationally and internationally. Braham's paintings and photographs are held in many public and private collections and art foundations. Among the awards received are the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy Guthrie Award for painting and the Royal Scottish Academy Morton Award for lens-based work. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Perth Museum & Art Gallery, The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh, Roger Billcliffe Gallery, Glasgow, Raab Gallery Berlin, and at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh. In 2021, Braham was elected to the Royal Scottish Academy.
