Scottish Art and Artists at Red Rag Gallery
Artist: Archie Dunbar McINTOSH

Archie Dunbar McIntosh was born in Glasgow in 1936 and took an interest in art from an early age. His Father was infuential in developing Archie's interest in art through visits to the Kelvingrove art gallery in Glasgow. One of Archie's other life long passions for the waters, banks and 'flyers' of the Clyde were developed as a youngster when family holidays were taken on paddlesteamers.

Archie McIntosh went on to study at the Glasgow School of Art from 1953 to 1957. Following that he taught for a number of years before becoming President of Glasgow School of Art in 1968. Today Archie McIntosh is one of the most original, professional painters working in Scotland. His paintings possess an unusual combination of the abstract and naive styles with a strong enduring appeal. Archie successfully creates a parallel world of distorted perspectives and fanciful motifs, which fascinate and entertain the viewer.

McIntosh's paintings reflect his enduring love of the Scottish Isles. Archie says: 'Since childhood, I have lived in close proximity to sea, loch, river and mountain. As a painter I have the desire to investigate the form, colour, texture and mood of each, and respond through drawing and painting. I feel it is part of my cultural heritage to interpret and translate the many influences in my life and soul. Within the 'larger vision' there exists many smaller component parts, which can combine to wear the whole. For example, a small harbour can present graphic images of fishermen ropes, reels, boxes, boats, birds - each with the potential for interpretation changing light, changing mood, changing seasons and changing vision.

Archie Dunbar McIntosh paintings have regularly featured in exhibitions worldwide. They are also in the public art collections of: The Scottish Arts Council; Glasgow Museum & Art Gallery; Edinburgh City Council; and Argyle Education Authority. Archie's paintings are also held in many corporate and private art collections including those of Rolls Royce, Peter Townsend and Griff Rhys Jones. He has been appointed to the RSW and RGI art societies. Prizes awarded for his paintings include: Guthrie Award, Royal Scottish Academy (RSA); Latimer Award, Royal Scottish Academy (RSA); Royal Bank of Scotland Award, Royal Glasgow Institute (RGI); May Marshall Brown Award, Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW).

In addition to Red Rag Gallery Archie Dunbar McIntosh paintings have been exhibited at a number of leading Scottish art galleries.

Scottish Art: Archie Dunbar McIntosh at Red Rag Gallery

This is the Seascape art page from Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery featuring the best in contemporary Scottish art. Throughout the year Red Rag features Scottish art from artists who specialise in creating fine Seascape paintings. Today is no exception you will find Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery has an extensive collection of Seascape art and paintings by leading contemporary artists.

Human beings have always had an intimate relationship with the water. Given the amount of the earth’s surface which is covered in water and the often unpredictable and life-changing nature of the sea, it is little wonder that seascapes have been such a popular subject for so long and no surprise that seascape paintings have an important place in the history of art.

Seascape paintings have a long history in both the Eastern and Western worlds.The walls of homes have been adorned with seascape paintings since the art of the secular painting first began to overtake religious works in numbers and importance.

As a country with an extensive coastline, paintings of seascapes have always had a special attraction to Scottish artists. All the seascape paintings at Red Rag showcase the talent of Scottish painters and their ability to depict changing light on water and rapidly altering climatic conditions. Many of the Scottish artists who have painted these seascape paintings are also talented landscape painters, or worked in other genres as well as seascapes, such as still life or portraiture.
