Internationally acclaimed artist Hamish Mackie will present a solo exhibition of new works at the Gallery in Cork Street from 7th October 2013. His distinctive sculptural depictions of animals have earned him a reputation as one of the world’s foremost wildlife sculptors and this exhibition will be a culmination of three years’ work dedicated to his subject-matter.
Mackie has created nearly 50 new works for this triennial exhibition, ranging in size from small guinea fowl to cheetahs and life-size camels. The artist has travelled to destinations including Namibia and Antartica in order to closely observe animals in their natural habitat. The exhibition will also showcase British wildlife including otters, deer, game birds and bulls.
Mackie has previously staged a number of successful international solo exhibitions, perhaps the most notable being his 2012 show at Mallett in New York. Last year his work was also selected to be displayed in Grosvenor Square and Oxford Street as part of the Cultural Olympiad. Mackie’s work is held in the collections of both corporations and private individuals around the world.
