Exhibition Opening


Join Fox Jensen McCrory on Thursday, 8 October from 5.30pm for the opening of Gary McMillan's Transmission.

McMillan’s atomization of the surface of his paintings invites us to actively reassemble sight itself. Having reminded us through his obsessive pointillist procedure that vision is inherently unstable, even volatile and we have a duty to slow looking down so that we might learn to see again, guided by internal editing and intuition, by feeling and knowledge and not by digitization and compression. In McMillan’s paintings visual clarity is not dependent on the dry rendering of what’s in front of you but it arises out of knowing that the truth of the painting is informed as much by what he chooses to leave out and that the images own veracity, its true responsibility is to itself.
