The Artist

A bold, intriguing clash of contemporary photographic elements and traditional oil painting; Calum Stevenson’s work is instantly recognisable and his creations leave a lasting impact within the viewer’s mind.

Born in Falkirk, Stevenson graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Arts from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in 2019. He then went on to graduate from the Glasgow School of Art with a MA in Fine Art Practice in 2020. Stevenson has been presented with numerous awards throughout the duration of his career thus far, including The Sandra McNeilance Prize for Drawing and Painting.

Stevenson’s creative process is unique in that his oil paintings begin as intricate digital collages, which are then reworked and evolved until he has reached the final, perfect iteration of his chosen compositions. These arrangements are then transformed into physical marvels as Stevenson translates each composition into a detailed oil painting on stretched canvas. Capturing a strong sense of movement and a bold intrigue, Stevenson’s artwork thrives in its complexity and the honed skill of its creator.

Our Commission

As a celebration of the city of Glasgow’s rich culture and the opening of Beresford Lounge in 2021, we asked Calum to create a series of truly unique paintings which reflect both Glasgow’s Art Deco heritage and the vision which encompasses Beresford Lounge itself. We desired something exciting, contemporary and complimentary to the modern energy of Beresford Lounge's interior design.

The Painting

A vision of elegant beauty; Stevenson’s composition provides an alluring vision of the decadent Art Deco style within Glasgow, marrying the iconic architecture of its past with a contemporary, exciting edge. The soft, organic curvature of the woman in the forefront of the painting  is contrasted against the geometric sharpness of The Tait Tower behind - a building embedded in Glasgow’s rich history and yet faded through the lens of years gone by.

The striking heights of The Tait Tower existed in Glasgow for merely a snapshot in time in 1938 - the year of The Empire Exhibition in Scotland - and the composition of the painting reflects this. Stevenson has artfully created sweeping areas, bursting with colourful, modern vibrancy, whilst other elements resemble the black and white photography of an era long since passed. “Empire Vision” is both a celebration of Glasgow’s architectural history and a nod to the excitement of the future.
