First published in 2012 by Maitland Regional Art Gallery to accompany the exhibition: Euan Macleod: Portraits. Exhibition Dates: 26 August – 2 October 2011
A series of portraits by Euan Macleod, featuring well known personalities from the Australian art world, including a portrait of MRAG’s own director, Joe Eisenberg.
The retrospective exhibition is simply and aptly entitled Portraits and depicts Macleod’s family, friends and a rich tapestry of people from his life, including several publicly known figures.
Macleod’s gaze has a way of revealing the secrets of his subjects – aging, ugliness, faults and moodiness. His portraits are vigorous and gestural and often treat the subject unmercifully.
