Be­tween 2008 and 2010 Wil­liam Mackin­non spent time in the Kim­ber­ley and Cen­tral Aus­tralia – an ex­pe­ri­ence that helped him to ‘find his own voice as an artist’. The land­scape of north­ern West­ern Aus­tralia, re­mote West­ern Desert and Pin­tupi coun­try had a pro­found af­fect on Mackin­non’s phys­i­cal and men­tal at­ti­tude to­ward paint­ing. Work­ing as an artist’s as­sis­tant and un­der the guid­ance of men­tors, Mackin­non was able to dis­cover his unique vis­ual lan­guage; show­cased in this new se­ries of works.
