The Opposite Shore is a series of new paintings and drawings which celebrate the crucial relationship between woodland and water, punctuated by geometric linear forms reminiscent of snow poles, street lights, signs, buildings, walls, windows, boardwalks or tree tubes.
This focus has its starting point in the landscape around Andrew’s studio, based initially on time spent observing and recording trees, man-made structures and water in various forms.
Andrew Mackenzie graduated with an MFA from Edinburgh College of Art in 1993, and lives and works in the Scottish Borders. His work has been exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally, and is represented in many collections. He is currently president of Visual Arts Scotland.
