Prints & Paintings by Geoff MacEwan

Saturday 14 April – to Saturday 20 May

His first exhibition in the UK for twenty years marks a homecoming for artist Geoff MacEwan. A noted painter and printmaker, MacEwan’s work is held in many public and private collections including: The National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, Fundacio MiroPalma de Mallorca and The Victoria and Albert Museum, Contemporary Prints Department, London. Born in Edinburgh in 1943, his maternal ancestors hail from the fishertown of Findochty on the Moray Firth, a short journey from Moray Art Centre, where his exhibition opens on Saturday 14 April 2012.

MacEwan honed his skills at Goldsmith’s College and the Slade, where Derek Jarman and Maggie Hambling were fellow postgraduate students in the swinging sixties. When he returned to Scotland from London he worked at Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop and the 369 Gallery. In 1991 MacEwan settled in Mallorca where he was inspired by the colours and textures of the island’s landscapes and steeped himself in the Spanish way of life. While in Spain, a fellowship from the Miró Foundation enabled him to work with Joan Barbera, Joan Miró’s printmaker.

The exhibition includes a selection of MacEwan’s work being shown for the very first time.

Gill Bird, Exhibition Manager, Moray Art Centre said: “We are absolutely delighted to be hosting the return to Scotland of work from this internationally renowned artist. Geoff MacEwan’s art resounds with colour, drama, poise and passion, with the themes of landscape and storytelling recurring throughout both prints and paintings.”

MacEwan regularly exhibits in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Palma de Mallorca where he teaches printmaking. Some of the work in the exhibition, which runs from Saturday 14th April to 20th May, is for sale below.
