“Art is an attempt at making sense of a world that makes no sense.” – Stewart MacFarlane
Stuart MacFarlane is a South Australian-based figurative painter with a penchant for using deeply hued and energising colour. His popinspired imagery captures aspects of human interaction and experience; its quirks and complexities. For this 65th solo exhibition MacFarlane reflects on the new chapters in his life; a sea change, new marriage and the passage of time.
