Andrew Mackenzie at Converge 2016 - Jackson's Art Blog

Andrew Mackenzie at Converge 2016 - Jackson's Art Blog | IELTS, ESP, EAP and CALL | Scoop.it
Converge 2016 opens today, 29 January 2016. Andrew Mackenzie is one of three invited artists, along with Steven MacIver and Sam Johnson, exhibiting at Converge 2016 Visual Arts Scotland.

The drawings, made with many layers of pastel and gouache on paper, are based on drawings made of an abandoned service station and are 150x112cm. One of his drawings won the Open Eye Gallery Award.
