Mary McIntyre is an artist who uses photography. She is a Reader in Fine Art at the University of Ulster at Belfast. Her work has been exhibited at international exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale, 2005.
Between 2000 and 2004 McIntyre’s work focused on interior spaces that had been forgotten and overlooked, her images conveying the atmospheres that resonated from the institutional spaces she photographed. From 2005 onwards McIntyre shifted the focus of her work to the subject of landscape. Her imagery explores the relationship between landscape painting and photography. Her current work examines the sublime and picturesque in 18th-century European landscape painting.
