About Artist: Born in Liverpool in 1939 and brought up in Scotland, John McLean is a painter, printmaker and sculptor who has been called “a self-propelled missile whose long career has been an unfettered exploration of abstraction and a unique journey into colour”. It is the colour in his work which first hits the senses but equally important is the structure which tells a story of relationships. The way in which the elements talk to each other is critical. Because John’s monotypes are generally printed with all the colours arriving on the sheet at the same instant, they co-exist with a naturalness which is quite at odds with a general understanding of what printmaking is about. They are very definitely hand-made but have no hint of assemblage: everything belongs with everything else.
