Through his work as a sculptor Hamish Mackie has had the privilege of observing wildlife in many corners of the world at first hand, thus bringing his passion for the natural world into his sculptures. Largely self-taught, Hamish’s style is unique; his work captures the inner core, strength, and grace of the subject. His sculptures are his own interpretation, and not a photographic representation of the subject, through his close observation and his expressive manipulation of the materials Hamish is able to capture an instinctive moment of animal behaviour.

Hamish frequently works in spontaneous, often unrepeatable, fluid gestures. This confidence is born from many years of mastering his craft. It is this assertive handling of materials, which result in strong dynamic, living sculpture. However his sculpting ‘technique’ will vary according to how he perceives the subject; for example, a compact feathered bird such as an albatross will be sculpted in a tight method, in comparison to the free feathers of an owl that dictate a looser handling.

‘…standing at the end of a very long process of development.’ Hamish’s sculpture is clearly informed by the works of the ancient Egyptians and the Renaissance, through to the more recent realism and drama of Barye and Buggatti.

Born in 1973, Hamish grew up on a livestock farm in Cornwall, England. He developed a love of wildlife at an early age. After Radley College, Falmouth School of Art and studying design at Kingston University, it was in 1996 that Hamish began sculpting full time, thus turning his passions into a career. In 2007 Hamish built a studio in Oxfordshire, where he now lives and works with his wife Laura and their three daughters Isabella, Matilda and Otterlie.

Since his last London solo exhibition in 2010, Hamish has travelled to Antarctica, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Africa and United Arab Emirates to study his subjects. “Observing animals in their own environment is essential to understanding the subject’s physical and instinctive traits. For example, the disposition of a captive leopard is very different from that of a leopard in the wild.”
