Near and Far by Debbie Mackinnon and Mike Staniford at ARO Gallery
Tuesday 25 June 2019
Debbie Mackinnon and Mike Staniford will unveil their latest exhibition Near and Far, showcasing a collection of abstract landscapes inspired by their love of travelling and painting together.
Running at ARO gallery in Darlinghurst, Sydney, the exhibition will present an insight into the couple’s travels of the natural world through a curation of evocative works.
The couple, married for 41 years, each create complex, layered horizons using broad brushstrokes to conjure the allusion of the land in the mind of the viewer, instead of replicating a mirror-image of the subject.
Debbie and Mike’s works foster a deep connection to the places they’ve been, the experiences they’ve shared and the memories they’ve made.
