Approaching the quiet landscapes of Ash Mckean, one does not anticipate its darker passages, yet the confluence of somber lyricism and mysterious narrative is where Mckean’s artistic power resides. In this selection of recent paintings by Mckean, solitary figures roam the desolate hills while storm clouds gather, witches congregate as churches are consumed by fire, and hooded figures float in a vast sea. Mckean's work challenges the timeless themes with which it explores. Through utilising ambiguity as a material, his paintings allow multiple visual and narrative associations. In this way, the bleak, isolated, and personal meshes with the romantic, historical, and mythical.
