Macara, Andrew

Bio

Andrew Macara has produced many one-man exhibitions and his work has also been hung at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Although he has painted many different subjects over the years, the subject is always incidental to light. His pictures glow with light and life. Whether it be life on the beach, in the playground, or in the zoo, he simplifies but always captures the essence of his subject. His work is full of movement, atmosphere and space. Ken Howard RA .
