James MacKeown

Born 1961, James is the grandson of the late Tom Carr, (1909-1999) one of Belfast’s most distinguished painters, and was taught mainly by his grandfather. Though James never attended any formal school of art, he evidently absorbed the profoundly teachable style which his grandfather had learnt at the Slade School in London. Mackeown’s work is essentially intimate and comtemplative and he is interested in the behaviour of light in quiet domestic interiors of cafes. He is also interested in the structure and form of objects and figures, creating truly beautiful paintings, mainly in oil.

James responds to the appealing landscape and seascapes of County Down. He also transplants this feeling for place to his two other territories. Pembrokeshire in West Wales (where he lived in the 1980’s) and Normandy in France, where he has been based since 1988. James regularly travels between all these locations.
