Fiona MacDonald

Country of residence United Kingdom

The focus in the new work is almost uncomfortably close, at a point where the imagery becomes ambiguous, the plant-like forms merging with suggestions of internal organs or unsettling acts. MacDonald reinvents the tradition of landscape painting by acknowledging Nature to be an active, turbulent space rather than a vista or sublime experience. This overheated environment is echoed by the layered and intertwined veils of transparent paint - where form and colour compete as if in an evolutionary battle for survival.
