Alan Barnes Fine Art Gallery presents Rob MacIntosh: Into the Wild opening reception
Rob MacIntosh displays enormous diversity in his work. Within the broad divisions of wildlife, landscape and seascape, MacIntosh explores a multiplicity of subject matter ranging from the signature rural and urban architecture of South Africa (available at the Ferriera gallery in Bryanston, Johannesburg) and America to sweeping compositions of the deserts, mountains and agricultural heartland of the region. He is a self taught artist which has tended to liberate him from much of the formality of fine art which in turn has laid the foundation of his free spirited journey of personal creative expression.
At the root of MacIntosh’s work is his passion for art, for the outdoors and for the work and interpretation of many of his principal influences. These include Carl Brenders, Terry Isaac, Ray Swanson and photo realist Richard Estes, among many others. He works predominantly in oils but enjoys merging this medium with acrylic in a mixed media style that has become his own.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 13.
