James Maconochie Art Prints and Posters
On returning to England six months later, he studied Renaissance and 20th Century Art in Oxford, where he wrote a thesis comparing the background land and seascape scenes of Old Master paintings with contemporary works. This was titled The Same Sky. In 1986, while based in London, he was awarded a grant by the London Arts Council and held his first one-man show at The Orangery, in Holland Park. This generated significant interest and the majority of the exhibited pieces were bought by a private collector in Geneva.
In the last ten years there have been numerous exhibitions in London and abroad, with work based mainly on his semi-abstract visions of Bermuda, the Caribbean, the West Indies and, closer to home, the Western Isles of Scotland. While he has maintained a loyalty to the colour blue, he claims that he has by no means reached the end of the infinite variations of its interpretations.
