Hilke Macintyre

Hilke Macintyre

Hilke MacIntyre grew up in North Germany where she studied at the College of Art & Architecture in Kiel. In 1996 she moved to Scotland where she divides her time between painting, printmaking and producing ceramic reliefs.

Hilke’s work uses a simplified figurative style with strong abstract pattern. Particular influences are ‘primitive’ art, early 20th Century European art and contemporary design. The limited edition ceramic reliefs are made in editions of 50. An original design is formed from clay from which a plaster mould is made. Then into which new slabs of soft clay can be pressed to an identical relief. After a first lower firing in a kiln, the reliefs are all individually glazed, so that each looks slightly different. The reliefs are then fired again at a higher temperature. Each tile is then numbered and signed by Hilke.

Hilke Macintyre Breakfast

She is now working as an artist near St Andrews. Her paintings, linocuts and ceramic reliefs are exhibited in galleries throughout Britain. Hilke’s work has been selected many times for the annual show at the Royal Scottish Academy. “I work in a simplified figurative style and enjoy using bold shapes, strong colours and patterns. The world around me, especially nature, animals and people, give me plenty ideas for my pictures. Particular influences are primitive art, artists of the early 20th century and contemporary design.”
