Brian Waugh

Brian creates original high quality art that reflects not only the ideals of beauty but also a fascination with the Romantic and Symbolic themes of passion, magic, love, loss and transformation, both spiritual and physical.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                He is interested in the classical and medieval worlds of myth and legend, poetry and literature which portray beauty, death, regeneration and immortality. His work can be very figurative and the characters he portrays usually exist in haunted, mysterious landscapes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             When making stained glass, Brian uses traditional techniques such as acid etching, fired paint, stain and enamels, all of which have been employed by artists and artisans for hundreds of years, thus enabling Brian to create beautiful, evocative and remarkable art.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Most of Brians art is done to commission, but he does exhibit in the UK, Europe and the USA.
