Nick Giles - Originals On Glass

Nick Giles - Originals On Glass

Working on the reverse of glass using mainly oil based paints suitable for glass, Nick builds up his paintings in layers to create depth. By varying the drying time between layers (typically between 8 hours and several days), Nick is able to add texture and effects to enhance his paintings on glass.

Once a painting is complete it is framed and backed with white mount board, which allows light to reflect back through each painting where the paint is kept most transparent, creating a luminosity of colour unique to Nick's style of painting.

Artist Biography:
In 2004, after a successful career in the insurance industry, Nick Giles retired allowing him to pursue his creative leanings, which, until then, had focused on interior and garden design in his spare time.

Under the tutelage of Joan Lawson, the well-known Ayrshire artist, at Robinwood Art School in Ayr, he immersed himself in the pain and the pleasure of learning to paint. His enthusiasm and latent talent saw Nick develop his own painterly style in a remarkably short time, and requests and commissions for his work soon followed. Nick then saw that an artistic career was a realistic prospect.

As many artists, past and present, draw on Arran's beauty and wildlife to inspire them, so it is with Nick, whose character is reflected in his interpretation of his surroundings in his bold, colourful, vibrant and sometimes humorous work. Nick also cites the Scottish Colourists J.D. Fergusson and F.C. Cadell as his biggest influences.
