Alan Mackay is a Newlyn-based painter who attended Camberwell Art School from 1960 to 1964. He says: 'My paintings and sculptures are made to realise a sense of monumentality. I work with careful deliberation to remove inessentials, tightening my grip on the idea, seeking in nature and the human form, shapes that are both expressive and contain an element of visual drama.'
His work has been exhibited widely in Cornwall and beyond, and is held in private collections across the UK and in Europe.
