About Gerard M Burns
Born in Glasgow in 1961, Burns graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1983 with a degree in Fine Art. Drawing and Painting have been his passion since childhood. He shared this enthusiasm throughout his teaching career, later leaving a successful post as principal of art at St Aloysius College Glasgow to pursue his painting full time. Since 1999 this commitment has resulted in his current standing as one of Scotland’s most respected artists.
‘As a consequence of the lockdown, I found myself diversifying into sculptures. These new pieces are the beginning of what I expect to be a major feature of my artistic output’.
