Based near Glasgow, Lewis MacKenzie is a contemporary impressionist painter, and is largely self taught. He draws influence from masters of past eras, such as Velasquez, Vermeer, Raeburn, Sargent, and the Boston School Impressionists, however, his exceptional ability to capture scenes and intriguing locations in Scottish scenery is truly unique.
Far removed from his previous career in a cancer laboratory, his current work focuses on portraiture, still life and landscape. This has resulted in numerous achievements, such as being shortlisted for the Bulldog Bursary in 2012, and then in 2014 he was selected for a summer scholarship at the Florence Academy of Art. Furthermore, his Painting “Heather in Red and Green” was awarded the Arnold Clark award at the 128th Annual Exhibition of the Paisley Art Institute in 2015.
Lewis’ commitment to the impressionist way of working, which is to approach form through the study and interpretation of light, in an effort to draw out the musical and poetic resonances of the visual impression, can be seen and appreciated throughout all his work.
