Delicate yet substantial, uplifting yet weighty, Mackenzie’s monumental works have an impact wherever they are displayed.
Mackenzie’s monumental artworks have been exhibited all over the globe; from the West Coast of America to the shores of Japan and at home in the UK, Mackenzie’s large scale works stand proud. Among Mackenzie’s celebrated monumental sculptures are Skipping Together, On the Bench and Falling in Love.
Mackenzie has shown his monumental works extensively in the USA, including Kansas City, Oklahoma, Chicago, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, San Francisco and New York. Fukuoka, Kumamoto City and Kagoshima in Japan, Alice Springs and Sydney in Australia and Christchurch, New Zealand.
In 2019 Mackenzie will unveil a new monumental artwork at the Tees Transporter Bridge, the Middlesbrough landmark that features in so many of his artworks. The sculpture is inspired by one of Mackenzie’s most recognisable paintings, Waiting for Me Dad, which has become iconic in it’s own right but has been updated to feature a boy and a girl for the public sculpture.
“Art is not really about the object itself, any piece of art is a vehicle to bring you an experience, to provide a thought, an emotion or a new perspective.The art is in the experience, that emotive response or relationship you have to the piece.” Mackenzie Thorpe
