Artist / Alastair Mackie

Highly crafted, labour-intensive works, where everyday subjects are charged with strong, socio-political undercurrent, for example, gold plated hand grenades, mosquito dice. Alastair Mackie’s farming background has influenced his use of organic materials and his observation of nature (‘Plate’ and ‘Triptych’) - works that conflate wild animals’ innate survival and territorial instincts with our obsession with war and territorial expansion.
