About the Artist
Works vary in size, cards, work in browser, artist books, framed pieces and large stretched canvas
In recent years when working from a studio in Edinburgh and having one in Kippen, Mackay felt that her practice was fragmented doing different things dependent on work place. She finds that despite being in one place now, this is still the case. The large studio in the garage is unsuitable in Winter but reorganising space in the house allows continuation but with some restriction freedom of movement and in size of work. Covid restrictions further altered the direction and nature of work, revisiting ideas about communication explored during the final year at ECA ,as well as a wealth of visual information from the landscape and garden surrounding the house. Each has influenced both works on paper and on 'canvas' but the essential nature of abstract artwork is still very much in evidence.
