 About WILLIAM MACKINNON (Melbourne, b. Australia):

Born in 1978 in Melbourne, Australia, Mackinnon earned his Bachelor of Arts from Melbourne University, his Masters of Visual Arts from Victorian College of the Arts and his Post Graduate Diploma from the Chelsea School of Art and Design in London. Exhibited heavily thoroughout Asia, Europe and Australia, Landscape as Self Portrait, marks WILLIAM MACKINNON’s first exhibition in North America.

About Landscape as Self Portrait:

“For me painting is not passive mimicry of what is in front me. I see through my memory. Whether intended or not, every painting is a self-portrait. The roads and places I paint are both specific and amorphous. I want to transport the viewer along roads analogous to life and it’s various stages. They are filled with inclement weather, this is internal weather of the mind; fog, darkness, dips and peaks.”
-WILLIAM MACKINNON on his inspiration
