Studio phone interview with Mackenzie:
JV: What was your inspiration for the title ‘The Search'?
MT: The title was from the 1956 John ford movie The Search. What makes a man to wander, what makes a man to roam, what makes a man turn his back on bed and board, what makes a man turn his back on home.
JV: Is the duffel coat character's search over?
MT: No, the search lasts forever.
JV: What music were you listening to when you painted this piece?
MT: Vera Lynn's Harbour Lights.
JV: Is the painting set in a particular place?
MT: No.
JV: Is the path red for a reason?
MT: Yes, it is the passion of the journey.
JV: The color spectrum in the sky is amazing, how did you know it would turn out so powerful?
MT: I knew because I painted the rainbow colors of the sky as an homage to Tom Wall my tutor, my friend.
JV: Do you think you will use new techniques after using lacquer & varnish on this piece?
MT: Yes! I have just found metallic inks with patterns such as fish scales! Which I am really excited about using.
Do you have a question?
