Clement McAleer
Passing Landscape
27 February to 12 April, 2007


The focus of McAleer's painting - on paper or on canvas - is primarily landscape: not the particularities of place, but rather the restless, shifting aspects of nature where cloud or water, land or sea transform themselves atmospherically, one into another. In this new body of work Clement shifts his lens to take in the urban forms and landscapes encountered during his recent travels through Europe. Strands of light and memory are woven into rich new patterns that evoke a human aspect while staying true to the landscape tradition.
