FRANK STELLA, 1964:
“What can be seen there is there…
What you see is what you see”
16-30 SEPTEMBER 2017.
A POPULAR SHOW, INSPIRED BY CONTEMPORARY THEMES, THE WORK CREATES RICH FIELDS LAYERED WITH COLOUR AND TEXTURE.
'‘High Society’ is inspired by the examination of contemporary themes, drawn from politics, religion, monarchy and culture. McQuarrie has produced a series of abstract paintings from direct observation, response to place and the desire of “withdrawing something from something else”. He translates the information derived from these themes into paintings, where layers of colour and texture create rich fields. His particular interest lies in using abstract drawing to create the illusion of three dimensional space on a two dimensional surface.'
