Tammy Mackay comments "I have always had a passion for printmaking, which has always been my main form of expression. Although I have used etching and monoprint as my primary mediums, I have always experimented with new techniques. More recently I have used photopolymer plates and drypoint. These techniques are often combined with hand drawn or hand coloured
chine collé. Exploring and developing new techniques opens up new possibilities which I feel is essential to my
development as an artist and printmaker.
Tammy Mackay's most recent body of work is entitled Love [loss] and Identity. This series has been a personal exploration of
these themes. A journey of feelings often linked to an object, moment or past memory. Images have become both
layered in process and layered in meaning. Animals and birds have become central to the theme and convey a subtle
symbolism within their depiction. “Those Lost Forever” exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2013 and
“Gone but not Forgotten” exhibited in this year’s show are both from this series.
I grew up on a farm in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. I studied at Rhodes University in South Africa and
graduated with an Honours Degree in Fine Arts, majoring in Printmaking. Although I now live in the UK, my work
still reflects the imagery of where I grew up. I show my work in the UK and abroad, and have had work included in
corporate collections in South Africa."
