Radiant Landscapes Within Abandoned Places By Andrew McIntosh

Scottish painter Andrew McIntosh (aka “Mackie”) takes ubiquitous structures often abandoned on rural homesteads like travel campers or sheds and reveals hidden worlds within. Radiant sunsets and expansive skies appear like portals into another place: “My paintings are an exercise in attraction. Through them I am constantly searching for new ways of communicating with the viewer. By seducing them with my imagery, I try to create a new visual language with the power to pique their attention and make them stop to ask: why? Desolate landscapes, decrepit houses, and incongruous moments of glory come together to suggest the presence of a narrative that exists as much in the viewer’s mind as in the painting. This is how I aim to use my works: as the space for an imaginary dialogue between strangers”.
