Born 1977, lives and works in Glasgow.
Following a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Environmental Art) at Glasgow School of Art, Lorna Macintyre completed a Master of Fine Art at GSA in 2007.
Macintyre’s recent sculptural and photographic works have used a number of reference points – from literature, psychology, Greek mythology and alchemical symbolism – as the initial source for her ideas. These references frequently form a kind of oblique structure behind a piece of her work, often lending a form for a composition or providing the impetus behind the choice of materials.
