Alexander McKenzie’s intimately observed landscapes offer a point of collision between the dreamy and the familiar. Whether our connection stems from dimly recalled visits, or whether we have wandered through the shores of his misty settings in our waking dreams, is hard to tell.

McKenzie considers art as a medium between the visible and invisible worlds, where the visual journey provokes an interior one. Yet the artist’s paintings are not allegories in the traditional sense: they depend neither on a pre-determined narrative, nor a particular geographical setting but on personal experience and emotional response.
