EUAN MACLEOD – 23 Aug-17 Sept, 2016
“Just as the painter prods the visual field with brush or palette knife, the walking figure tests the ground; he shifts earth and snow; he moves water with hand or oar. A mark is left in the sand, a ripple, a gesture in mid-air.”
Gregory O’Brien, 2014
The distinctive exploration of figure and landscape is continued in these recent paintings by Euan Macleod. There are two themes in this exhibition. The first is water based, inspired by Euan’s residency in Dusky Sound. The other grouping is selected from his Gallipoli work, painted following trips Macleod made to Turkey in 2013 and 2014.
