JOHN MACKIE

John Mackie was born in Glasgow in 1953 and studied at the Glasgow School of Art between 1972-76.It was there that he was first introduced to the Scottish Colourists and the Glasgow Boys,admiring their bold use of colour and Powerful draughtsmanship. Having already been influenced by Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Cezanne and Van Gogh, John was eager to experiment with their various styles and techniques. After a travelling scholarship to the USA and Canada (where John first saw the work of Thom Thompson and the Canadian Group of Seven) he lived and Painted in Italy and France inspired by landscapes and cities around Tuscany, Umbria and Chianti. In France, Paris was, of course, a source of many Paintings on the Place Du Tertre (the Artists Square) and the Champs Elysees: but it was in the South of France where John felt most at home,in the Cities of Carcassonne, Montpellier, Beziers and Narbonne where he painted bustling markets and elegant sun-dappled avenues which still feature prominently in his work today.
