Andrew Macara Sunlight and Shadow


Andrew Macara was born in Derbyshire in 1944. Although he studied contemporary modern British Art for a short period with Leonard Fuller at the St Ives School of Painting, he considers himself a self-taught artist. Today Andrew has one of the most distinctive styles of present day contemporary British Artists and has enjoyed considerable success. He is a member of the prestigious New English Art Club, having been elected in 1984. Talking about Macara’s paintings, Professor Ken Howard RA says: ‘I have known and admired his work for many years. Although he has painted many different subjects over the years, the subject is always incidental to light. His paintings glow and, as with all the best paintings of light, they never describe, but are always an equivalent for light - the light just coming from the canvas. As well as being full of light, his paintings are also full of life. Whether it be life on the beach, in the playground, or in the zoo, Andrew simplifies but always captures the essence of his subject. His work is full of movement, atmosphere and space and his paintings are deservedly popular, for he always touches on the everyday joy of life.’ 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, and the Westminster and Hilton Hotel Group for their corporate headquarters. He has won many art awards including 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. Andrew 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 his British seaside paintings. Andrew Macara is now established as a very collectible contemporary figurative artist.
