Bright Black Starry Sunny Night
In Bright Black Starry Sunny Night, Neil McClelland takes his childhood home as a starting point for considering ideas of place, home, belonging, transformation, and human relationships to nature and the cosmos. In these paintings, he seeks to create a fictional place of deep beauty but also of tension and uncertainty in which anything might happen. Night skies imbue this imagined world with a sense of isolation and magnitude, an opening of the cosmos beyond what a farmyard scene might ordinarily suggest.
Opening Friday September 9, 2022, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Neil McClelland will be giving an Artist Talk on Saturday, September 24 at 2 p.m. It will be presented in person and online.
