McLean Edwards, Installation View, Goulburn Regional Gallery, (two views)
OK ...So I've been off air for an inordinately long period of time. But, in my defense, I have been working hard for my first solo show in a public gallery, Goulburn Regional Gallery in November, and have managed to complete ten large works -and I'm pretty happy with them. I checked out the Gallery on the weekend - swallowed hard and crossed my fingers - it's a large new gallery, very exciting and very scary.
“..I draw out the shapes as quickly as I can to keep myself off balance. I try to think about them as little as possible and let them come from unconscious places…It’s a way of tricking myself into trying to do or see something not so predictable…I get anxious to discover a new way to paint, which brings back the pleasure. …I play around (with paint) as long as I can stand it…it’s a process of trying to be unconscious and very deliberate at the same time…”.
