Andrew MacKenzie is a painter whose work mines a territory between pure abstraction and representation. His work responds to the landscape and overtly acknowledges the constructs through which it is seen. Now based in the Borders, and trained at Edinburgh College of Art, he is represented by the Sarah Myerscough Gallery in London, and has presented several successful solo exhibitions there.

His work has also been included in important group exhibitions, and he has shown his work widely in the UK and abroad. He has received several research and development awards, and has works in many collections, including The Fleming Collection and The University of Edinburgh. (Paul Keir)
