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.
