Ian and Hilke MacIntyre: An exhibition of printmaking by two artists based in the East Neuk of Fife.
Hilke MacIntyre was born and grew up in Germany near the Danish border.
From 1983 – 90 she studied at the College of Art and Architecture in Kiel and after a diploma in Architecture worked for various architects in Germany and Britain. 1996 she moved to Scotland and concentrated on lino cutting, painting and making ceramic reliefs. She now lives with her family in a small village near St Andrews in Fife.
Her art involves colour, pattern, simplified shapes and abstracted space combining these elements in pictures of life around her. Inspiration comes especially from early 20th century art, ‘primitive’ art, contemporary design and nature.
Her work is exhibited in galleries throughout Britain.
Ian MacIntyre was born and raised in central Perthshire/Scotland. He studied painting at Edinburgh College of Art from 1976-81. His work is now part of several public collections including the City Art Centre Edinburgh and Perth Museum and Art Gallery. He paints and prints at his home in the East Neuk of Fife.
