A native of Cornwall, Macey is currently involved (2010) on a yearlong project to paint National Trust landscapes in ten regions throughout the British Isles. Integral to the commission is the accompanying film, created by Cornwall's Three S Films, based on a series of DVDs featuring the artist on-location at various sites around the county (for the Cornish part of the project). These include not only the iconic St Michael's Mount, but also Godrevy, Cape Cornwall, Botallack etc, and the artist explains his techniques and gives advice to others wishing to follow in his paintmarks.
Limited edition prints and cards are made from his images, which are sold to support the National Trust in conserving Britain's landscapes.
In 2009 he completed a similar major project for the RNLI, painting 180 locations around the English coast, raising much needed funds for them.
An artist loosely associated with St Ives, Wood lists MacGibbon as having an address in Glasgow and exhibiting a view of the Palais de Justice (Rouen) at the RA in 1891.
Born in Bushire, Iran, of Irish parents, MacIvor studied at Alexandra College, Dublin and at Julian's in Paris, and exhibited from 1908 at the Paris Salons. By 1912, her address was 4 Piazza Studios, St Ives.
She married artist Frank Proschwitzry FREYBURG, and although by 1917 the couple had moved to London, they continued to visit St Ives frequently. She illustrated the Wonder Book for Children.
Called in one obituary an 'austere painter of the modern St Ives School' (Davies) in description of his careful, perfected abstractions of landscape art. A charming and quiet man, both his teaching and his art stood as a beacon of high intellectual quality and counterbalance to the negative reaction to the political ferments often found in artistic circles.
Born in Liverpool, McKenzie attended Liverpool College of Art between 1946-1950, after completion of Army service. His first move into Cornwall was to St Ives in 1951, at an especially contentious and competitive time. He exhibited his work in a Solo show at Robin NANCE's shop on the main street.
In 1953 he moved on to Newlyn and Penzance, where he felt more at home, and where he taught at the Art School until 1964, whilst still exhibiting successfully in St Ives, Newlyn, London, New York and elsewhere.
Thereon for twenty years, he was the Head of the Department of Fine Art at Plymouth College of Art and Design, in residence there with his wife, Coralie CROCKETT (who died in 1973), and three daughters. In retirement from his teaching post at Plymouth, Alex returned to West Cornwall, living and working in his studio-home on Morrab Road, Penzance near the Penlee House Museum.
His sculptural and sensuous style in architectural and geometric formats enhanced the landscapes and sky-lines he loved and studied. Both his teaching and his clear, calm style influenced many artists who might have more public recognition. His reputation continues to grow.
