Scottish painter Andrew McIntosh (aka Mackie) takes ubiquitous constructions often abandoned on rural homesteads like journey campers or sheds and divulges hidden worlds inside: radiant sunsets and expansive skies that appear like portals into one different place. Drawing inspiration from a childhood spent inside the Highlands of Scotland, the London-based painter presents sudden life to derelict buildings set in opposition to the backdrop of mist-crammed woods and frozen mountains. From his artist assertion:
My work are an practice in attraction. By means of them I am constantly on the lookout for new strategies of talking with the viewer. By seducing them with my imagery, I try and create a model new seen language with the power to pique their consideration and make them stop to ask: why? Desolate landscapes, decrepit houses, and incongruous moments of glory come collectively to counsel the presence of a narrative that exists as quite a bit inside the viewer’s ideas as inside the painting. That’s how I objective to utilize my works: as a result of the home for an imaginary dialogue between strangers.
McIntosh most recently exhibited a model new physique of labor with bo.lee gallery last month titled “The place we Belong” at Pulse Miami. You probably can see many extra moderen work in his online portfolio. (by means of The Jealous Curator)
