Gordy Livingstone (b.1988, Glasgow, Scotland)
Gordy Livingstone lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. He has a BA in Visual Art from Leeds Metropolitan University and a MA in Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee. Primarily a painter, Gordy’s work straddles imagined and real life scenarios. The paintings play out like a set design or backdrop from film or stage. Elements are layered with oils and what is to hand immediately. His work also does not form to one style or idea. he leaves this door open intentionally to allow him the freedom to explore and have fun with ideas and paint. Subjects can and have included musicians, sports, pop culture and fashion, urban environments and people. These motivate Gordy to create painterly, expressive abstractions that use colour and composition playfully.
