Dale Bissland is an artist whose work displays technical accuracy alongside emotion and sensitivity. This is a rare find and made all the more impressive as Dale is self taught. After studying the old masters and researching their techniques, he has learnt how to paint in a manner which displays an advanced skill set, using traditional methods to create a contemporary form of realism.
Dale paints places he knows; Glasgow tenements, familiar landscapes and also includes a figurative element of people he is close to. No matter what the subject of his choice, all his work displays equal amounts of depth. He is lead intuitively and paints with no limits. He is primarily attracted to light, mood and atmosphere, rather than any obvious narrative. He aims to try evoke a certain mood or emotion in the viewer.
Dale is also a highly accomplished musician, playing and composing music predominantly based around the classical and electric guitar, among many other instruments, in his thought provoking instrumental music.
