“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.
