Acclaimed British conceptual artist Bruce McLean presents an exciting new exhibition of ceramics and limited edition silkscreen works inspired by the shifting light, shapes and movement of his Spanish garden.
As well as sculptural and pottery pieces, ‘Gardenworks’ will feature the Scottish-born artist’s newest monoprints with hand-painted and collage elements, alongside the original, one-off collaged sketches for his ceramics - which will be available for sale.
Collated from a decade of work originally provoked by the energy and colour of his wife Rosy’s carefully tended garden at the couple’s home in Menorca, these works burst with his trademark vibrant colour palette and wry humour.
“The garden is like a moving sculpture,” says McLean. “I sit and look at it – the light trickling through, the shapes and funny forms changing with the light, and as the wind moves stuff. That’s where it comes from. It’s not so much that the work is inspired by the garden as that it soaks into me.”
