Sally McLaren

The Passage of Time

Extended until the end of May 2020

Sally McLaren is a modernist in the nature of her active involvement and passive reception of the given world: not so much describing it as reporting and recording from within it.  She is also modernist in another crucial way, which follows from the first.  Her attention is not solely fixed on the actualities of nature; it is preoccupied by the reality of the print or the drawing  or the painting itself.  A work is not a picture of the world so much as an object in the world: an object that, like the music of which Stravinsky spoke, is the outcome a conscious human act, an object that will bring both sensual and intellectual  pleasure; a self sufficient object that will 'please us, divert us, delight us‘ as much as the natural objects and energies that inspired its creation.
