Neil McClelland: Bright Black Starry Sunny Night
Xchanges Gallery
September 9-25, 2022
Victoria, BC
“Victoria-based artist and educator Neil McClelland grew up in Quebec’s Gatineau Hills. His paintings revisit his childhood home as a metaphor for belonging and a sense of place, within the natural world and the greater cosmos. These works also express our anxious and uncertain times. A farmhouse situated under starry skies or within moonlit woods communicates a raft of uncanny oppositions: familiarity and mystery, beauty and suspense, sublimity and mundanity, fixity and transformation.” Robin Laurence, Preview Magazine
