Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1993, Graeme has continued to practise as a painter based in WASPS Southblock Studios, Glasgow. He exhibits regularly in solo shows and group exhibitions throughout the UK and Europe.
Recent work depicts people and events experienced in public spaces around the city. These paintings show figures engaged in ambiguous actions in half-remembered spaces. These situations and scenes have lodged in the memory due to some resonance or poignancy that can't quite be dismissed. The resulting paintings are partly an attempt to balance a sense of stillness with a sense of movement; a tension which hopefully generates a heightened feeling of the strangeness of everyday life and those around us.
Other work is more portrait based, including commissions and an ongoing series of portraits of anonymous individuals, their characters re-imagined according to what their appearance or behaviour might suggest.
