'Coastline' | Stewart MacFarlane

2nd – 26th May 2018

OPENING NIGHT: Friday 11th May, 6-8pm

ARTIST TALK: Saturday 12th May, 2pm

Stewart MacFarlane is a figurative artist whose work is saturated with contrasting blocks of colour and exaggerated angles. His aintings are dramatic narratives - uncertain and unsettling. With his implied scenarios and visual clues, his works raise more questions than answers as he entices the audience to play detective and solve the mystery. 

MacFarlane likes the idea of telling stories and has never really given a painting a 'story', he likes the viewer to do a lot of the work in deciding what is going on. Much of his work is made to have an uncertain narrative in it, leaving the painting open, rather than having an obvious image that sums up things for the viewer.

Stewart MacFarlane is a finalist in the 2018 Percival Portrait Art Prize in Townsville and the 2018 Fleurieu Art Prize in SA.
