Artist Statement

Respect for the two dimensions of the picture plane are paramount and I attempt to tread the fine line between the figurative and abstract in order to attain this. It is not easy to produce this result especially whilst using light and shade as an important subject in itself in the construction of a painting.I believe that painters who achieve this may be creating a purer form of painting. Anish Kapoor and the late Wiliam Gear have supported me in this.

 

Andrew Macara has undertaken several painting commissions for Public and Private Modern British Art collectors. These include: a series of contemporary paintings for Sir Anthony and Lady Bamford; Scott Bader Company; New Parliamentary Building; Westminster and Hilton Hotel Group for their corporate headquarters.

 

Andrew Macara has won many art awards. These include: Sir Huw Weldon, Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition, Brian Sewell, Gileas Auty and Lord Palumbos choice, Discerning Eye Exhibition. Andrew was awarded the coveted De Lazlo art medal in 1985. And, Macara’s latest art award was at the RBA in 2005.

 

Andrew Macara travels extensively gathering images for paintings from around the world. But his native Derbyshire continues to feature in many paintings – particularly the more recent Winter scenes. Other subjects with strong demand are Andrew’s British seaside paintings.
