History of Exhibitions

Hamish Mackie at Life in Bronze exhibition

“Exhibitions are a hugely important part of my work as a sculptor. I really appreciate the opportunity to get out of my studio, connect with collectors and discuss my work. I also enjoy showing people round my studio. There’s nothing like seeing people’s response to my sculptures when they view them up close.” (Hamish Mackie)

Hamish is at the forefront of a new breed of artists that include event production as part of their business. He has been curating and producing all aspects of his major exhibitions for over two decades. The art world has moved on and with the advance of technology, it is now possible to show work and interact with an audience, far beyond the traditional route of sole representation by a static gallery.

Although Hamish is represented by several galleries, he enjoys welcoming visitors to his Oxfordshire studio, which can be arranged by appointment. Please use the contact page if you would like to get in touch or if you would like to be informed about forthcoming events and his next triennial solo show.

Monumental owl sculpture in exhibition

“Among the sculptures I felt I was with living animals. As a veterinary surgeon who specialised in anatomy, I picked up on a most accurate depiction of posture, in all its subtlties and on movement. From these followed the correct form of the animal. Out of all this came the dignity of the animal. I was both excited and deeply moved.” (Roy A. L. Batt, B.Sc.,B.V.Sc.,MRCVS.,Ph.D.)

“Hamish Mackie, now internationally acclaimed, has emerged as one of the most talented and original wildlife sculptors of his time. Partly this is due to the fact that he is the master of a virtuoso technique, in a technical tradition that dates back to Rodin. What Rodin did with the human body, Mackie applies to animal forms. His work has a compelling freshness, but also great emotional force. Looking at these sculptures, the spectator often feels that he or she is in the actual presence of the creature portrayed.” (Edward Lucie-Smith, Art Critic and Historian)
