Hugh McIntyre

Born in Coalsnaughton, Clackmannanshire, 1943 Secondary education in Portland, Connecticut, USA Rhode Island School of Design, 1961 - 1963 Edinburgh College of Art, 1964 - 68 Collections include The Late Princess of Wales The works of Hugh Mcintyre, D.A.Edin are most typically out of doors, enveloped in atmospheric overtones and continue the long tradition of Scottish painting. Never working from a subject directly, he walks the riverside or seashore in all weathers and then returns to his studio to relive his experiences by putting them down on canvas. once he has decided on a particular arrangement, it will be repeated over and over until the concept is exhausted. Never working on fewer then three canvases at a time, Mcintyre is able to maintain a high level of intensity by constantly changing from one canvas to another, thereby seeing each with a fresh eye. This technique allows the artist to produce the prodigious amount of work for which he is noted. He regularly returns to themes, sometimes years after the initial investigation. Hugh Mcintyre knows his subject matter intimately and from the time he began exhibiting, twenty years ago, has been recognised as an artist who could distil essences from the landscape which were unique. Never a slave to the physical reality of a situation he has created a more meaningful and accurate representation by painting from the heart those ordinary moments which make our landscape extraordinary. Over the last few years, Hugh has travelled widely working in Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Brazil. This has introduced a number of new themes into his work and enriched his palette in a very positive way.
