WILL MACLEANNARRATIVES 20 Apr - 12 May 2018The Fine Art Society in Edinburgh presents an exhibition of new and recent works by Scottish RSA artist Will Maclean.
Will Maclean’s art serves as a tangible record and reference to culture, tradition, history and identity. A proponent of box construction art and the examination of found objects, the narratives in his works document the cultural and practical traditions of Scottish Highland and coastal communities.
Alongside his academic career at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Maclean exhibits internationally and has work in public collections worldwide.
The exhibition includes work recently completed and some from the recent past. The constructions and sculpture are responses to narratives that the historian and critic Alan Woods described as ‘Compressions and juxtapositions of memory, poetry, metaphor, the tides' leavings’.
