Outside Looking In

Outside Looking In spans the decades of exploration, reflecting Stewart MacFarlane’s consistent fascination with the world, with people and places, and how light falls on it all. Inspired by his heroes of the Modern Art world—Van Gogh, Picasso, Drysdale, Nolan, and Boyd—as well as his Contemporary idols—Americans, Edward Hopper, Fairfield Porter, and Alex Katz, his figurative influence and vision has remained constant. As the dialogue of the art world has gradually become narrower and politically driven, MacFarlane prefers to remain on the outside looking in; a figurative, narrative painter from an earlier time.
