Ally Thompson (1955 – 2016) was one of the golden generation of figurative painters associated with the ‘New Glasgow Boys’ who studied at Glasgow School of Art. Ally’s surreal view of the world was vibrant, disturbing and inhabited by angels and demons. The environs of Milngavie, where Ally lived, inspired several of his landscapes. This exhibition has been curated by Ally’s brother, Douglas Thompson.
