Master Strokes 2: It seems GY has more painters than you can shake a ship at. Meet Dale Mackie…

Dale Mackie  is a painter who depicts a lost heritage in such vivid hues that the disappearing world he commemorates seems instantly revived. More celebratory than nostalgic, Dale’s work punches you in the senses like a North Sea blast off the Dogger Bank.

Mackie, the man and artist, is East coast through and through, and may well have the North Sea running through his veins, such is the inspiration he finds from the fishing industry.

In his own words: “Of particular interest are the situations of men at work, human interactions and relationships that are captured in iconic scenes of fishing trawlers rough and marred by use and the elements or, emotive paintings of fish sales on the old Pontoon that literally bustle with characters trying to be recognised.” Nice one Dale, you are putting the Great in Grimsby… and isn’t that Whitby too!?
