Although residing in Paris, Mackenzie’s art has been showcased across the globe.. Most recently, her work was featured in Paris’ Galerie Etienne de Causans, in the exhibition “Le monde poétique des artistes”, meaning the poetic world of artists. Nestled in a neighborhood brimming with trendy cafes, bistros and art boutiques,the gallery is located near Les Deux Magots and Café de Flore, coffee spots once favored by the literary world’s greatest, such as Hemingway and Camus.
Delving into the inside world of an artist is at the core of Mackenzie’s painting practice. As her own muse, she uses the vibration of sound to submerge herself into her subconscious, allowing her inner voice to speak through physical movement. The intense color and vivid brushstrokes that characterise her work are her body’s instinctual response to hearing music, ranging from classical and soul to ambient lounge and pop. Using form, space and color, Mackenzie creates an infinite number of combinations, expressing her inner being through this visual language that is art.
