Artist Talk: Lachlan Goudie

Thursday 30 May, 6pm

Free for members of GAC, £5 non-members


Lachlan Goudie has spent seven years documenting the construction of several ships at the Govan BAE Systems shipyard, including the last vessel to ever have a traditional launch on the slipways of the Clyde, HMS Duncan.

Shipyard features over 70 artworks which document the assembly of the next generation of Britain’s naval vessels including the vast Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers.

Drawing on hundreds of images Goudie created at Scotstoun, Govan and Rosyth between 2009 and 2016, the artworks range up to 3m x 2m in size and across a wide range of mediums. These include oil and gouache paintings, pen and ink drawings, sketches, sculptures, wood cuts and large charcoal portraits.

Join us on Thursday 30 May at 6pm to hear Lachlan talk about the experience of working in the yards.

Limited number of tickets available – early booking is advisable.

Lachlan Goudie, born 1976, is following in his father’s footsteps as a painter himself as well as writing and presenting the BBC television series The Story of Scottish Art (2015) and presenting a BBC documentary celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of CR Mackintosh (2018). Lachlan is currently a judge on the popluar BBC show, The Big Painting Challenge.

Shipyard runs at the Glasgow Art Club from 11 May – 07 June. Public access Monday – Saturday, 11am – 5pm. Entry to the exhibition is free.
