British art: artist Andrew Macara at Red Rag Gallery

British art: 'Mountain Tops' by artist Andrew Macara at Red Rag Gallery

Andrew Macara is today’s featured British Artist at the Red Rag Gallery.

Andrew Macara was born in Derbyshire in 1944. He is primarily a self taught artist although he did study contemporary modern British Art for a short period with Leonard Fuller at the St Ives School of Painting.

Today Macara has one of the most distinctive styles of present day British Artists and has enjoyed considerable success. Macara was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1981. Then in 1984 Andrew was elected to the New English Art Club – a society which includes artists: David Cobley, Charles Hardaker, Ken Howard, Karolina Larusdottir and William Selby

Andrew Macara travels extensively gathering images for paintings from around the world. Today’s featured painting ‘Mountain Shadow’ was completed in Tignes, France. Macara’s snow scenes are distinctive because of his skilled treatment of light and shade. Long blue-grey shadows capture each snow scene perfectly. He looks for colour and movement and manages to convey a sense of life in his paintings. ‘Mountain Shadow’ shows the grandeur of the French Alps and the exuberance of the skiers who seem to be flying down the ski slope. Macara contrasts their bright red ski suits and the vivid blue sky with the white shadowed snow.

Paintings by Andrew Macara are available from Red Rag British Art Gallery together with Andrew Macara Limited Edition Prints .
