Opening event Sunday September 2, from 2.00pm
Pātaka Art + Museum, Porirua
Curated by Gregory O’Brien.
Extending the genre of self-portraiture, Macleod is an artist ‘prepared to push the boat out into uncharted waters and dare to take a risk’, as Peter Rose observed in his history of the Archibald Prize, which Macleod won in 1999. At a time when New Zealand society is thinking about environmental issues, global warming and the politics of water, McLeod’s figure-in-landscape paintings are as relevant as they are vital.
