About

This celestial and camper trailer inspired painting titled "Perseus" is an original artwork by Andrew McIntosh made of oil paint on linen. With a representation of the constellation Perseus, the artist incorporates elements of astronomy to infuse this realistic landscape painting with elements of the surreal. The piece measures 19”h x 21”w in the pictured floater frame. Biography // Born in the Highlands of Scotland in 1979, I recall drawing from an early age; obsessively drawing and re-drawing pictures, trying to achieve perfect scale and interesting ways of devising images. Through this compulsive process, and drawing on my education in illustration and design (Edinburgh’s Telford College 1997-99). In the summer of 2001, I took the plunge holding a solo show in Grantown-On-Spey museum with landscapes in watercolours and ink. For the next 9 years I continued with landscape painting achieving some commercial success, holding a variety of shows throughout Scotland, gaining some great commissions from members of the exclusive Carnegie Club, amongst others. But when I wasn’t painting landscapes I was sketching a different world. One that needed to be explored. In 2010 I relocated to London deciding to use my lifelong nickname ‘Mackie’ to pursue this new concept. I've since returned to my real name though. Just a phase. In a great 2014 I made a real breakthrough winning the National Open Art Competition and taking part in the John Moores Prize. Solo exhibitions include ‘Where we Belong’ with BoLee Gallery at Miami Pulse, ‘You were shit in the 80s’ and ‘We were the Coca Cola’ at The James Freeman Gallery, London, 2015 and 2016, and The Hayhill Gallery, London, in 2013. My work has been included in numerous group shows including ‘Here Today…’ curated by Artwise, Art16 with BoLee Gallery, The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and the Lynn Painters Stainers Prize. Collections include Simmons & Simmons, selected by previous Turner Prize judge Stuart Evans; The Ivy in London; and the family of John Moores. Artists Statement // 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.
