Continuing with the theme of our current Scottish art show, today we are highlighting the work of Archie Dunbar McIntosh

Archie Dunbar McIntosh was born in Glasgow in 1936. His Father generated Archie’s interest in art through visits to the Kelvingrove art gallery, whilst family holidays on paddlesteamers “doon the watter” gave McIntosh his life-long passion for the waters, banks and ‘flyers’ of the Clyde. He studied at the Glasgow School of Art from 1953 to 1957.

McIntosh’s paintings reflect his enduring love of the Scottish Isles. Archie says: “Since childhood, I have lived in close proximity to sea, loch, river and mountain. As a painter I have the desire to investigate the form, colour, texture and mood of each, and respond through drawing and painting. I feel it is part of my cultural heritage to interpret and translate the many influences in my life and soul. Within the ‘larger vision’ there exists many smaller component parts, which can combine to wear the whole. For example, a small harbour can present graphic images of fishermen ropes, reels, boxes, boats, birds – each with the potential for interpretation changing light, changing mood, changing seasons, changing vision.”
