Gordon Bryce was born in Edinburgh in 1943. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art, where Sir Robin Philipson was Head of Drawing and Painting and Sir William Gillies was Principal. His love of color and texture began there, and has stayed with him since. After graduating, Gordon moved to Aberdeen, where he was appointed as a Lecturer in Printmaking at Gray’s School of Art in 1968 and then became head of Fine Arts from 1986-1995, before devoting himself full-time to his own painting.
Following in the Scottish Colorist Tradition, Gordon Bryce captures the landscape around Aberdeen-the River Dee through the seasons, mid-winter hill farms and the thick birch woods that surround his house–with a confidence in color second to none.
