Finlay Mackintosh: the artist and a painting (2014)

Finlay Mackintosh: Selected Everything

Community Space, Gallery 1, Gallery 2, Gallery 3, Visual Arts
10 April - 06 June

Glasgow-born and bred painter Finlay Mackintosh’s life is given over painting. Using a variety of cameras (a Hasselblad, a Nikon, a digital one), Mackintosh explores Glasgow and sites farther afield (London, Venice), snapping photos to add to the vast collection of photos in his home studio. Then the work begins. Painting. For years, Mackintosh kept this up while working at a job; in recent years his art work has become full-time and all consuming.

Frequent subjects are the park near his home in snow and summer (mostly snow). A beloved aunt’s sitting room and dinner table. His record collection and turntables. A toy train set. The trainyards behind Glasgow’s main station. Flower beds. A parrot in a cage. Everything. But selected by Finlay Mackintosh.
