Artist Mackenzie Thorpe is internationally known and loved for his original artworks, sculptures and prints that express the human condition in a profound and compassionate manner. His latest exhibition showcases artworks that tell a tale of innocence (and innocence lost) about young cowboys filled with fantasy, adventure, exuberance and the naivety of childhood. As a child of the 50’s, Mackenzie’s’ playtime games were heavily influenced by Cowboys and Indians. John Wayne was a hero and Bonanza, a TV favourite. His ongoing interest in the
‘Wild West’ culture continues today.
“I have always had a deep longing to revisit and touch the innocence and naivety of childhood. The influence of the movies I watched of the wild west as a child was an incredibly influential time for me, transporting me from my daily life growing up. I didn’t want to be English anymore, and it captured my imagination and had a profound effect on me. The influence has never left me.”

His artwork offers each of us a pathway to the child within us all, as he masterfully appeals to all of our collective memories of youth.
