Congratulations to our former Portrait Diploma student, Jonathan Farningham, who has a self portrait in this year’s Scottish Portrait Awards.
The exhibition will tour around Scotland for seven months.
Jonathan says ‘I have always found self-portraiture fascinating, for it represents the artist without embellishment, caught in the moment of making, tools in hand.’
He was born in Scotland and this is in fact his second year in the exhibition, which has only run for three years and aims to promote the best of painting in Scotland.
The exhibition will next show at the Glasgow Arts Club from 17th January to 15th February and then Kirkcudbright Galleries from 14th March to 24th May.
