Andrew McIntosh - Dreamers
‘Dreamers’ is an exhibition of new paintings by the Scottish artist Andrew McIntosh, presenting a series of surreal inhospitable landscapes where independent retailers fight to survive.
Andrew McIntosh is a painter originally from the Highlands of Scotland, and the works in this show all return to his native landscapes. They are a collection of large paintings in the Romantic tradition, depicting grand, wild, indomitable places. The Romantics of the 19th century looked to such raw natural environments as an antidote to encroaching technology and the Industrial Revolution.
They represented a dream of uncomplicated existence, a place for individual idiosyncrasy as well as a figurative representation of the tormented spirit of the Romantic, railing against the relentless advance of mass-standardisation.
