November 2014

Meet the Artist: Andrew Mackenzie, with Ken Cockburn. Saturday 8 November, 2.00-3.00pm. Sarah Myerscough Gallery, Mayfair, London. Admission free, but please book in advance via info@sarahmyerscough.com.

To mark the close of Andrew Mackenzie's exhibition Veined with Shadow Branches, join Andrew as he discusses his work in the company of poet Ken Cockburn. Last April Andrew and Ken walked in the Ettrick Valley, a remote area of the Scottish borders, linked with poet and novelist James Hogg (1770–1835), and artist William Johnstone (1897–1981). Andrew subsequently made a number of drawings based on their visit, and Ken wrote a short sequence of poems, Into Ettrick. Join them in the gallery for a presentation and discussion of their work.

In April 2012, I will be showing in "Evaluation of Space", a group exhibition at Rochester Art Gallery.

I will be part of "A Parliament of Lines" - a major drawing show in the City Art Centre, Edinburgh. A Parliament of Lines will exhibit the work of fifteen contemporary Scottish artists (or those who have been through the Scottish education system), most working at an international level, and all of whom use drawing as an important element in their practice. The artists are: Charles Avery, Paul Chiappe, Layla Curtis, Nathalie De Briey, Moyna Flannigan, Luca Frei, Euan Gray, Sam Griffin, Marie Harnett, Callum Innes, Alan Johnston, Andrew Mackenzie, David Shrigley, Graeme Todd and Ainslie Yule. The show will tour internationally in 2013, including RMIT, Melbourne and The Pier Art Centre, Orkney.

Summer 2011

I have recently completed a major commission for a building in London - Number One Kingsway. It can now be viewed permanently in the main entrance to the building, on the corner of Aldwych and Kingsway. It consists of 3 paintings, each 125 by 122cm, based on layered plane trees and architecture from the street outside the building.

May/June 2011

I recently made my first wall drawing in a fairly remote bothy near Ettrick Pen, on the Southern Upland Way. It's at the very top of the Ettrick valley in the Scottish Borders and is part of the WAY project, an installation involving 5 artists/poets - Liz Douglas, Mary Morrison, Allan Harkness, Kate Forster and himself. It's a great project and well worth the trip up there. Map ref: NT182082. If you'd like a leaflet with images and text by all the artists (they're nicely produced), please get in touch. The work is there May and June, but his drawing will stay until someone paints over it. Read more.

Seven Short Sails

What is Seven Short Sails? Initiated by artist Pat Law, based in Heriot in the Scottish Borders, it is a creative chinese whispers...the starting point - 1 sailing boat, 7 short voyages and 7 artists. All in northern latitudes. There are cultural similarities and parallels between artists living at these latitudes; ways of living and seeing dictated by climate, daylight, geography and tradition, and this series of responses will unwittingly reflect those elements.

7 artists have responded to 7 sets of material which took the form of sketches, stories, paintings, photographs, conversations, and the outcome will be shown here. These responses will be passed onto another 7 artists and so on... for a total of 7 phases/50 artists.

Seven Short Sails
