A graduate from the Royal Academy Schools and previous outright winner
of the Discerning Eye, 'New Discovery Award' (at the time the largest
financial award bestowed on any artists in an open competition in the
UK) Shaun's work has been praised by critics and is held in major
private and public collections around the world.
'Capturing people in quiet moment of reverie and achieving a balance
between paint and subject matter are my aims with the paintings. To both
represent and give some inner life to a figure is a compelling and often
‘The majority of Shaun Ferguson’s wonderfully atmospheric and
sensitively expressed paintings are inspired by the figure, and usually
this is the figure caught in a quiet, contemplative mood. His work
involves an intriguing balance between subject matter, painterly
considerations and interpretation, offering challenges and qualities
that lift it well beyond straightforward portraiture, which in fact is
never his objective. Interestingly, although he quite often adopts the
conventional head and shoulders ‘portrait’ composition for his figure
subjects, in seeking a more individual, painterly result he instils in
the work a strong sense of energy and tension’.
