Alasdair Macintyre: The adventures of Aecap - Art Collector

Alasdair Macintyre Art Stop 2016. Polystyrene, resin, wood and acrylic paint. 185 × 180 × 65cm. Courtesy of the Artist and Tweed Regional Art Gallery, Murwillumbah.

Aecap is artist Alasdair Macintyre’s alter-ego, who takes his name from a blue baseball cap with a large white A on the front.

Through a series of dioramas, larger-than-life sculptures and hands-on activities, this exhibition encourages Gallery visitors to join Aecap and his dog Impasto as they go on a journey to find out what it means to be an artist. This new body of work, created for Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, invites viewers to ride aboard the rollicking Splatsmobile, cozy up to the art-huggy monster, step inside the Junior Artist box or become a Young Master. The exploration, the dreaming, and sometimes the perils are all about the wonder of being an artist.

Alasdair Macintyre hopes Aecap will encourage us to be artists, or to follow art – or both.

This exhibition is on display over the Summer holidays, providing a great destination for the family. Children will undoubtedly enjoy
