John McLean

Alan Shipway reviews a monograph on UK painter John McLean. Shipway writes that McLean's paintings "have an open-ended feeling, seeming to lay bare the mechanisms of painting itself, and therefore contributing something very particular not only to British painting but to art as a whole. All ambitious art has this quality of open-endedness - of visibly containing within itself its own means and its own possibilities."

More images of John Mclean's paintings are available on the Broadbent Gallery website as well as an on-line catalogue of McLean's work.
