6th - 28th October JAMES MACKEOWN.

Born in London 1961 of Irish origin, James MacKeown spent most of his childhood in the British Isles spending time in Wales in the early '80 where he developed a firm attachment. In 1988, he moved to France where he currently lives and works in Brittany. His Grandfather was the distinguished Ulster painter Tom Carr (1909-1999). MacKeown did not recieve any formal form of art training but was strongly influenced by Carr who had studied at the Slade School in London and was closely associated with the Euston Road School of Painters during the 1930ís. The work of MacKeown is both poignant and contemplative. His domestic interior paintings offer the viewer a glimpse into the life of his figures, whether they are the representing the sentimentality between the realtionship of a mother and child, or secluded in their own private thoughts. MacKeown has the ability to capture a special moment in time whether it be in a cafe, or at the beach on a hazy day and his interest in the behaviour of light contributes to the compositions to great affect.
This latest collection of new works by Mackeown see him reflecting on the time he spent in Wales and where he continues to spend considerable time with many members of his family based here.
