Murray Grigor is an independent Scottish film-maker, writer and exhibition curator who has won international acclaim for his ongoing contribution to the arts spanning over 40 years.
Mackintosh (1968, 32 min)
Charles Rennie Mackintosh, born Glasgow, 1868. As a student, he was the painter who led the Spook School, a Glaswegian expression of Art Nouveau. At 27, he was the architect who won the competition to design the Glasgow School of Art, his masterpiece. Later, an interior designer, his rooms were formal and austere in a world cluttered with knick-knacks. At the end of his life, he designed textiles for the new Jazz Age. This film is a centenary tribute to a remarkable man with the sad affliction of having been born ahead of his time.
Mackintosh, Murray Grigor’s first independent film, won five international awards, helping to re-establish the reputation of Mackintosh, now celebrated world-wide as one of the most creative figures of the early twentieth century.
E.P. – Sculptor (1992, 59 mins)
A documentary about Eduardo Paolozzi, one of Britain’s major sculptors. The film observes him at work with students and in conversation with friends and associates.
“The works of one of Britain’s major contemporary sculptors, Eduardo Paolozzi, is explored through his obsessions: surrealism, classicism, waste, ethnography and time. He is seen at his work bases in London and Munich and through the eyes of associates such as J.G. Ballard and Malcom McLeod.”–Container.
The film E.P. Sculptor won the Rodin Prize at the 1992 Paris Biennale.
