Ian Scott Massie's work concentrates on portraying the personality of the landscape. The major themes of his paintings are the effect of light and weather on landscapes, which he portrays through the use of vivid colour. The Pennines, the Lake District and the abbeys, castles and ruins of the North of England are his favourite subjects. In many ways his work is a continuation of the themes which underpinned several artists of the British Romantic School of the 1930s – most notably Paul Nash and John Piper.
The Gallery in Masham, Wensleydale is the principal outlet for his work.
