Andrew McIlroy

The Turning, 2014

oil on linen
183 x 153cm
$ 18,000 Gallery price

Andrew McIlroy is one of a new wave of highly regarded Australian Romantic artists. His elemental paintings are evocative visions that are deeply personal and embedded with individual experiences. Painted in strong saturated tones, they beautifully portray expressive seascapes with tumultuous seas and stormy skies. If the essence of McIlroy’s paintings went only this far, they could be viewed as outward looking, non-sensual depictions of nature. However in Tempest, his latest body of work there is something deeper going on. From their composition and palette, the paintings capture the artist’s mood where he promotes a strong sense of emotion, illuminating that the forces of nature are still ever present.

From his studio, located in a century old rubber-glove factory in Richmond in Melbourne’s inner-city, McIlroy immerses himself in imagined seascapes. These elicitations have their basis in reality but are produced more from a memory. They are deeply sensual and at times heightened by disturbing experiences that capture both the ‘unseen’ and the ‘known’.

‘My paintings are deeply personal, a metaphor for the fears and anxieties that gripped me as a child. I know I am not alone in these life experiences so I hope to emotionally engage and connect with the viewer using familiar images and universal experiences.’ Andrew Mc.Ilroy
