Recent Landscapes

31 May - 20 July 2008

Maclaurin came to Australia from Scotland in 2001 and now lives and works in Central Victoria. returning to Scotland regularly. The works in this exhibition have been painted since 2003. The strength and freshness of Maclaurin's work comes from an immediate and intense engagement with the landscape:

Always a traveller, many intimate relationships with place have always inspired me. The central core of my work has always been the importance of the direct experience. Using 'en plein air', the intense scrutiny of wilderness landscape is the catalyst for my major studio-based paintings.
