The sepia shadows that punctuate the alpine ridges and slopes in Euan Macleod’s recent paintings strike a familiar note with followers of his work on the far side of the Tasman Sea. In the uncontained Australian fire season of summer 2019-20, not only was the sky above much of Aotearoa/New Zealand stained a reddish brown by smoke, dust and ash, there were reports of ‘caramelised’ snow on Franz Josef Glacier and elsewhere in the Southern Alps.
Macleod and well known New Zealand photographer Craig Potton spent a few nights together near the top of the Tasman Glacier early this year. They were figures in a dissolving landscape.
The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
