John MacAulay

Born: Glasgow,

1991-1993 Royal College Of Art MA (RCA)
1986-1990 Glasgow School Of Art BA (Hons)
The Fleming -Wyfold Foundation

Born in Glasgow, John MacAualay graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1990 and from The Royal College of Art in 1993, specialising in Printed and Mixed Media textiles. His working practice includes Painting, Printmaking and Textile Design.

His paintings are inspired from observations of urban and domestic life and form a narrative; they are captured moments from actual events and mixed with remembered ones, depicting people in ordinary everyday settings. The daily mundane activities we all do or see. The sometimes ambiguous scenes and the titles encourage the viewer to continue their own narrative.

MacAulay has recently been using his working practice as a reference and inspiration for his paintings, Work In Progress II and III, are examples of this narrative, depicting a day in the studio, either busy working or looking for inspiration and in The Collection the work references his design practice; creating printed and embellished garment shapes for the fashion market.

This narrative approach has also been extended to his practice as a successful and award winning textile designer and he is in the process of creating a collection of narrative based printed textiles for the interiors market.

He has exhibited regularly with London galleries, among others Lena Boyle, Neville Contemporary, Modern Artists Gallery, StART Space, Pryory Art, Cadogan Contemporary, Thompson’s and Macgregor Fine Art, as well as mixed exhibitions in Glasgow, Oxford, Bristol, Edinburgh Miami and New York.

His work is also included in The Fleming Collection, London as well as numerous private collections.

John is also currently employed as a part time lecturer on the BA Textiles course at Norwich University of The Arts.
