Olivia Irvine is a contemporary Scottish painter who currently resides in Edinburgh. She studied at Edinburgh College of Art and then received a Spanish Government scholarship to study in Madrid; this exposure to the painterly quality of Spanish art influences her dreamlike figurative works.

Passion for art

Irvine was always a creative child who loved to draw, and after initially studying medicine, she decided to pursue her dream of being an artist. Drawing informs her practice today, creating a spark which ignites her memory and imagination when creating her unique paintings. Irvine enjoys the spontaneous nature of painting; the focus is as much on colour and pattern as on narrative.

Imaginative process

Irvine creates dreamlike paintings of semi-real environments, and her process is key to achieving this. She begins with abstract areas, and then defines certain elements more clearly, combining the observed, remembered and fantasised. This reflects her views on the psychological issues of place, identity and autobiography. Irvine principally paints with oils, but also experiments with ancient techniques, such as fresco, gesso and egg tempera.

National success

Irvine has exhibited widely across the UK and overseas in the US and Spain, regularly showing at the Royal Scottish Academy Open and Visual Arts Scotland. Her work is in collections worldwide, such as the Lancome Collection in Madrid and in the Glasgow Museums, gifted by BBC Scotland.
