Colin Carruthers is a painter of Scotland’s empty landscapes and weather-haunted seascapes. He graduated from Birmingham’s BIAD in 1997. Living in Birmingham, he regularly takes trips north of the border to paint. Several of his paintings can be seen locally at The Purple Gallery in Bournville, Birmingham. His main selling gallery is Artery.

And he’s also showing work as part of the Arts & Business VISUAL exhibition at the Baskerville House gallery (10th-29th March 08, Centenary Square, Birmingham). ‘Visual’ appears to be the re-launch of the DVD-based(?) ‘Virtual’ gallery that was aimed at businesses.
