Andrew McIntosh’s paintings of Highland castles with portals to secretive worlds at sunset

Taking inspiration once again from his home surroundings and a
love of sunsets, Scottish artist Andrew McIntosh has released a
new series of paintings entitled The Things I’ll Give to
You
. But instead of
caravans
with portals to sunnier climes, this body of work
includes Highland castles.

Following a similar theme to his previous landscape paintings,
each setting is devoid of human life in an often moody wintry
scene but bathed in the warmth of an alternative world at
sunset, revealed only by a tunnel, entrance or cave. It’s
comforting but unsettling all at the same time.

Apparently, these sunset portals were originally inspired by
the 1960 film, The Sundowners, and allowed McIntosh to still
paint the Scottish Highlands, often so harsh and dramatic, but
inject a little romanticism without painting a romantic
landscape.

You can see McIntosh’s latest work at an exhibition at Beaux
Arts London from 19 October until 18 November 2017. More
